Music like this doesn't come out that often; nowadays, in the metal scene, everyone seems to be doing what bands from the 80's and early 90's already shaped, most metal music kept recycling itself over and over again until we sadly got used to that fact without minding much. When a band like D:S:O suddenly appears and breaks the whole metal scheme with such an original sound and renewed vibe, I just can't help to be utterly impressed as I am right now.

Rating: 9 DSO's debut still sounds fresh and exciting even now, after quite some years.

Rating: 10 Not a fan of the female vocals but otherwise superbly jazzy

Rating: 10 One of the strangest and coolest album that I hear in my entire life with very high content and fresh too .
Symphonic flamenco jazz "swing revival" heavy progressive "experimental" Avant-garde metal ...

Rating: 7 More interesting than most of their symphonic contemporaries. The album seems to pull from different musical genres all over the world from different periods of time. While it creates a unique listening experience, they pull off some of the styles better than others.

  Im not the biggest fan of the female vocals, they are good but it could be better without those. Otherwise great avantgarde with surprisingly good symphonic elements.
