Unlike most of my reviews, this won't be about how brutal this Death Metal band is, or how ground-breaking the music from that Grindcore group has become. This time I am reviewing a really different type of band and I am not even sure about the genre as it's a mix between the riffing from ISIS, the complexity from Neurosis and the stance from a really profound Doom metal band (name one please), all of this presented in the most incredible way, as instrumental music.

I am not talking about just some cool riffs in a song or some passages here and there, this is real music people and I'm talking about chromatic instances, progressions in every track, incredible scales, complex structures, things that average bands won't be able to play ever. These guys know what they are doing and they do it in the most spectacular way. The tunes presented in this album actually manage to create feelings and new astonishing ambiances.

The album is filled with incredible pieces and I am really impressed with their strength. The power within the music is just miraculous and I don't say that often, believe me. Everything inside this album is splendid, I love every single second of the tracks, every single progression, every riff, every drum-beat, every bass-line, every melody. I love everything from this album actually. This band turned from totally unknown (to me at least) to one of my favorites.

I'll keep this review short, I don't want to underscore more things about this album, but I'll just say one more thing: I know the idea of an instrumental band won't appeal to many of you but I can promise to every single one reading this review: you'll love this band and you won't get bored I guarantee you that. You opened this document for a reason, please don't waste the opportunity to hear one of the best albums ever made by a band.

This is a wonderful album. It actually calms me rather than the opposite.

I had never agreed 100% with a review before this one. This album is just perfect. So complex yet calm and relaxing.

Nice review, this album is awesome.

Good review, this album indeed has amazing qualities that deserve to be noticed.

But 9,9... maybe a little too much
