Guest review by
If you've ever heard something delirious, melancholic, something impulsive, something that comes from the deep soul that is so true that you have a hard time believing in it, yet implemented in the harshness of reality, think about it twice more. And again, once more.

Okay, I've maybe over-exaggerated the sentence above a bit, but this band defined a moody, gloomy atmospheric sound that I haven't heard from anyone else. Hailing from the cold-winded streets of Russia, many years after their debut, these guys will show you something that, if you listen carefully, will definitely stick in your mind.

A few listens, and I have discovered the beauty of this album. Very strong prog death effort, with hints of Atheist, Dark Tranquility, Gorod, and even Arcturus. These guys, nevertheless, crafted their own way of expression, adding some neoclassical touches a la Jason Becker and utilizing keyboards. The production is amazing: organic and vibrant, it lets every instrument breath and shine through. Just wow! I will be researching this band in more detail.
Savor what you feel and what you see
Things that may not seem important now
But may be tomorrow
