This is just a magnificent work of art in the whole extent of the word; Estradasphere created an incredible artistic album and developed their concept inside the music, the cinematic booklet, and the overall experience which can only be described as the score from a non-existent movie.
I can easily picture a younger band listening to Ennio Morricone's scores; the whole album unwraps itself within a surreal concept that involves a made-up story that ends where it begins, complicated for you? Well that's exactly why this album worths so much, it will make you think a lot!
Musically we're facing towards a very complex face; the band has NO physical genre whatsoever, the album goes from technical Jazz, to multi-faceted orchestra and even a couple of truly agressive bits here and there (faster than many Grindcore bands out there actually), it's of course an instrumental piece, similar to what Kaada did in "Music For Movie Bikers" only with a more hardcore and rockish glance and without the chanting vocal solos.
"Palace Of Mirrors" is a brilliant album, for smart people only; while closed-minded listeners won't have the chance to fully attract the core and concept of this record, many of us will take our times to analyse every single hint and every part of this artistic package. The final result is incredibly worthwhile, spastic over the skin, technical veins, progressive rampage and incompatible music, more than what most people can take in one sitting.
