Staff review by
This is a miracle - progressive metal band that doesn't sound like Dream Theater! Rare thing these days... 'In Search Of Truth' is the concept album with the main theme dealing with the 'X-Files' stuff, except after this album the 'X-Files' would look like a childish fairy-tale or some kind of a parody. Now, believe me, it takes a lot of talent to turn such thing as alien abduction into something this serious and deep.

I'm massively impressed by this album, the songs are very well structured, and the songwriting is very emotional, although I'm not quite familiar with what the concept is about exactly. The melodies are beautiful, and have a slight Gothenburg vibe, yet it's complex and progressive, with some excellent guitarwork and symphonic moments, and the vocals are great too. It's truly great power metal album, only without the full on cheese, they remind me of Masterplan but sound better imo.
