June 2011
Released: 2011, Nuclear Blast
Rating: 4.0/5
Reviewer: UK Team

In early 2010 versatile musician Mark Jansen (Epica) started a project together with keyboardist Jack Driessen and guitarist Sander Gommans (both ex-After Forever) to produce some heavy and technical death-metal combined with Jack's trademark symphonic arrangements. After writing some music together, Sander couldn't find the time to go for it anymore. Mark then asked guitarist Frank Schiphorst (Symmetry, Christmas Metal Symphony), if he was interested in filling the gap; And he was.

This album combines neck-wrecking technical death-metal riffing with huge melodic symphonic parts on thunderous drums topped by Mark's complex and thought-provoking lyrics through his brutal in-your-face grunts and screams.

With the collaboration of guest vocalists; Floor Jansen, Simone Simons, Henning Basse and Laura Macrì. It certainly stands out for other albums in its genre, definitely an album worth checking out!
