✦✦✧✧ Yep, this here is my newest choice for The One Prog Metal Album You Point At To Prove Everyone’s Worst Fears About The Genre. It makes sense that it’d be a John Arch + Jim Matheos Joint, as neither man knows the words “editor” or “self-restraint.” Still, the guitarwork and singing are every bit as faultless as their respective artists are renowned for.

I just know that Zig is gonna love it, though, so whatcha gonna do. Zig, consider this Four Stars for you. For everyone else, well, commit yourself to the first track (nine minutes), and see how you feel.
