✦✦✦✧ A highly anticipated prog metal album from Bay Area heroes does not disappoint. Newcomers to the band (and scene veterans) Evan Brewer on bass and Kyle Schaefer on vocals add a anchoring fullness to the sound, which is even shreddier than ever. And it’s nice to hear a return to a more dynamic sound. That said, this album is a workout to listen to. Simply too many notes! Also, the vocals could be a little louder in the mix. Don’t do my boy Kyle like that!
