Well, this is indeed a genuine elegant and impressive weirdness! I think this band should be regarded as one composing soundtracks and definitely not Metal sonorities! On this very album, there are neither guitars nor battery; therefore it is pretty clear it has nothing to do with Metal music. The synthetic sound is guided by some clear pleasant voices and a hallucinating piano intersecting a chaotic synth. It is a kind of symphonic Progressive with Electro elements and avant-garde frames, which, in the end, does not resemble with anything I listened so far. This Soundtrack of Schizophrenic movie indeed fascinated me but I believe it has no relevance to speak about it any further... not in here, where Metal is the main topic. It is about something else, a different kind of music, which deserves all the attention and it is worth to listen to but I believe it is not the point to compare it with extreme sonorities!
