This album has one fantastic song after another and they just build a masterpiece of sound and some great musicianship throughout the album , some fantastic skill set all around.

I am always excited to hear new music and this being an album where the first track off the album "Vortex Sun" is better than some of the full length albums I have heard this year.

"Run to the Plains" is 11 minutes in length --listen below :

I applaud the creative structure in which this album has in it, not one song sounding like the other.

"Curtains of Death" really has a great rock riff to start us off and some classic rock vocals adds to the great structure of the song as well.

Some fantastic mood music here in some of the tracks "Melek4s Lament " is some incredible sounding orchestrations mixed in with the overall sound of the song.

Thank you for reading this
Anthony Nadeau
