Staff review by
Rating supplement: Although it doesn't come without flaws, this was a relatively enjoyable listen and it should sate you while you're waiting for upcoming releases by your favorite prog metal bands.

Southern Cross hail from Quebec, Canada and their career path so far has taken curious turns: their debut was completely in the vein of dark power metal, the follow-up was enhanced with progressive influences (both albums were reviewed by Metal Storm's Jeff in 2007 and 2009) and their latest offering, From Tragedy is completely in style of classic - one could even say orthodox - progressive metal. Their first trip deep into the heart of Progland is indeed well-planned and well-executed, although From Tragedy's biggest advantages are also its biggest downsides.
