The Russian Federation seems to be producing more and more good, quality metal of various types in the last half decade or so. At the moment I am more familiar with their brutal death scene but over the years I have run into several highly talented bands from Russia playing other genres: Tvangeste (symphonic black), Dominia (symphonic melodeath), Illidiance (industrial), and SunLess Rise (extreme power) to name a few. I'm thinking I need to delve more into their overall metal scene though rather than just the brutal scene.

Rock-solid, high-energy, synth-driven progressive power metal that doesn't fuck around. No heel-dragging ballads and the synthesizer doesn't sound like an afterthought, but is an integral part of the music? On a power metal album? Well, slap my ass and call me babycakes! Sign me up for another listen!

Came back to this album recently... and I think I like it more. A stand-out album in a such an over-saturated genre thanks the impressive and dynamic use of synth (on top of the awesome performances of the other musicians). Keep it up guys! I can't wait for your next release! :3

*oh, and tracks 2, 4, and 6 are especially FUCKING KILLER* \m/
