Absolutely stunning. Even though it's their debut, I'm actually surprised these guys are still obscure, they sure deserve more.

Listen to Talvatis and tell me it isn't Porcupine Tree's Collapse The Light Into Earth played over the drums from Drive by The Cars.

yeah it's the same chords.
they should have just called it "Collapse the Light into Earth (Porcupine Tree cover)"

other than that, good album

Excellent album, can't put it down. Reminds me of Shade Empire's latest at times. Only a couple of songs dragging it down from a perfect 10. Highlights for me are Drop This Planet Of Dust and Vakuum.

Couldn´t agree more. Their EP from 2014 is excellent as well, specially the last song "Chameleon of the Clouds".

If you have a slightest sympathy for Wintersun, Be'lakor, In Mourning, In Vain and the likes, check this out immediately.

The only thing i didn't enjoy a lot is the vocals, anything else was awesome!

8.5/10 leaning towards an 8 for me.

Some very good parts on this and the dynamics are fantastic (the whole thing feels like a journey as the best prog albums should IMO), but the whole feels a little held-back, as if they've set themselves the boundaries of what they should sound like and have stuck within the barriers of it.

A bit more experimentation could go a long way.
