Awesome! Haven't heard from these guys in a while. Looking forward to this release!
Ordinary men hate solitude. But the Master makes use of it, embracing his aloneness, realizing he is one with the whole universe (Lao Tzu).

This is definitely good news.
Matheos is an active musician, he had another side project a couple of years ago called Tuesday the Sky, pretty good project (not metal though).

Can I wish for a new OSI? Pretty please!

Shit I didn't know the mighty John Arch is back with Matheos, last album is still one of, if not, the best progressive metal albums from this decade.
Never trust a junkie.

I found this album rather annoying than interesting. Debut was way better.

Vermilion Moons and Kindred Spirits are FANTASTIC, but everything in between is of varying quality and the album feels a bit long. Arch sounds amazing as always, though.
