Review by JD on October 19, 2015.

There must be a rift in the fabric of our world’s time and space, a cosmic twist in our unknown realities which are blurring of everything. I have found another instrumental album that is kicking the shit out of my ass. This is not your standard metal instrumental album, this one has teeth, breath and a soul. Interested??

What do you get when a two black metallers get together to show they can shred without Satan or blastbeats? This album!! Lawrence Wallace along with Mika Mage came out of the black metal scene independently, and have delivered a killer album unlike anything they had done earlier. Strong melodies, hooks and pure prog metal show musicians who can handle their instruments with the best out there.

I was intrigued when hearing about these guys before I listened to the CD. I was completely floored at their talent. I love every song, as they were musical and powerful without any doubt. They created an album that is simply incredible. Check out "Bad Omen", "Mirrors" or any of the other tracks, they are as good as or better than some of Steve Vai’s work has been over the last few years… and that is saying volumes.

If you get into good musicianship and instrumental albums that simply are fucking good this should (and needs to be) your next purchase. Don’t take my word for it, take a few moments to listen and your mind will make its own choice but I have a hunch that you will side with me on this one. Just go do it… and NOW!!!
