Staff review by
R Lewis

Vitriol is an Italian progressive metal sextet that, despite being only at the beginning of its career, is not anymore a promise: the quality of this release should rapidly bring it at higher levels, since finding such maturity in a debut album these days is becoming increasingly rare and extremely interesting.

Rating: 9 One of the best prog debuts of the last decade.

Rating: 8 A suprisingly good album! Usually I'm not so much into progressive metal - I find sometimes it to be too unaccesible and overcomplicated for it's own sake.
This is not the case - it's still accessible and also deeply emotional. Vocals are very nice and diverse.
I can only agree with review - a mature debut release indeed!
