I really like this album, and think these guys show a lot of promise. Good review.

I would score this closer to 90/100. I find no flaw with the production of this album, you noted it is an independent release, so it must be taken in context and this is a killer album production-wise for an independent band. Moreover, compared to their Winter Is Coming EP this CD is leaps and bounds better in every aspect.

The score here is very good, no doubt, and there are some moments that may not fly with some people, especially the more progressive moments with the odd times signatures and whatnot, but like with most bands that incorporate these things the time changes don't immediately grab you because it takes the brain a bit longer to process and figure out where the song is at.

My last comment is about the vocals. Yes, there are Barlowesque moments, but the singer has definitely found his own voice and it fits. Comparing him to Barlow as a whole he is going to fall short, and that shouldn't be happening. He sounds like Barlow occassionally and in those moments he sounds great, the rest of the time he doesn't sound like Barlow, so the comparison should end there. And again, compared to their EP, this guy has improved tenfold.

Great CD. Definitely worth checking out. Look for the thread on them in the Heavy/Power/Prog forum.

Kevin Barlow is a runningback for the San Francisco 49rs
Note sure why this name is mentioned?

Heh. I didn't think there were any bands dedicated to A Song of Ice and Fire. I'm no fan of modern power, but I'll check them out just cuz I'm such a huge fan of Martin's ASoIaF.
