Guest review by
dark awakening

I got into this band a few time ago; I was immediately caught by some reviews of this album that showed high valuations of this work called "Second Life Syndrome" talking about it as the new progressive rock/metal album to beat. I immediately wanted to listen to the work of this polish band. The artwork and the lyrical themes are really progressive, as usual they speak about inner struggles, relationships and all is perfectly integrated with the songs and the catchy atmospheres created by this band that counts on a single guitarist, a singer/bassist, a great drummer and a skilled keyboardist.
