Staff review by

Formed and manned by a Swedish man and a Welsh man, Sepia Dreamer unleash upon the world their musical version of what could be interpreted as the tranquil, but often dangerous natural world - all in forty-four minutes of elegant progressive metal. Recorded in both the members home studios in Stockholm and Cardiff, this is neither unprofessional nor uninspired, but something that has quite clearly had large portions of its creators time.

The Sublime is a long-time favourite of mine and has been part of my top 4 albums since I first listened to it. Above everything else this album is grand, epic and intricate in its own elegant way. Emotional and full of mood-swings, it seems delicate at times and radiating with power at others. With its many facetes this release defies genre boundaries and sounds more complete than it ever could with vocals.

Sepia Dreamer's The Sublime isn't exactly easy to get into on initial listening, but believe me, it's well worth the try. If you feel up to the challenge you can give "Capitulation" (the last track of the album and the only one off it on their myspace page) a shot!
