    Thank you, Richard! What I do not fully accept in the review is the definition of the band as a prog metal. What do you think about this?
    And if any of the members of the forum also shared an opinion I would be grateful to him!

    In my opinion, this has nothing to do with prog-metal. The fact that the guitars "bite" give the music some heavy edge, and yes, this record belongs to the heavy, guitar driven side of progressive rock. But prog metal? Like Dream Theater and stuff? No way.

    It is a very-very good record (the songs, the performance, the sonics) that deserves some greater attention from people who enjoy melodic, symphonic, heavy rock.

    Thanks for your comment, Zappathustra! And thank you for the good words about the album!
    I'm not a big fan of stylish definitions, but a lot of people define the style album like Heavy Prog, Eclectic Prog, or Symphonic Prog.

    I agree with Zappa and yourself, this definitely isn't PRog Metal, and I understand certain music outlets require genre and sub genre titles.
    But I wouldn't get too upset, after all you were reviewed by a substantial organization and that review was positive.
    Your creative work is being received positively, and regardless of the definition, it is being discussed amongst the progressive rock world, and that discussion has been very positive.

    It's been wonderful following your journey from those first raw demos and ideas to the finished product, and also to see how positively you are representing the progressive rock music from Bulgaria.

    I don't really care for a lot of Prog Metal since to my ear a lot of it has a sameness in structure and even melody so I might have skipped it if not for the above description.

    ADDENDUM: I'm listening now and it's quite enjoyable. Not metal at all which is fine by me.

    No matter what anyone says, you are the decider of how you will listen to music.
