It's been a while that I received this album and I really need some time to listen to it because definitely "Hyperstructure" is really complex and deep release of Progressive Metal. On the other hand this is great piece of Metal and for a first release I must tell you that Genaro Ochoa, the mastermind behind this release, has simply done an amazing work. The Arkitecht is not signed by a major yet but this release deserves it. We're just in front of a fantastic album of Prog Metal, that's great discovery believe me!

Rating: 9 It makes me so sad that very few actually know this album. Face Thief is an indisputable prog masterpiece in itself, and is alone worth the price of admission.
