I’ve seen universal praise for this band and this album and I think it’s warranted… they keep the heavy riffs heavy, the music is catchy, technical, progressive while still having a good heavy edge… Great great!

Sweet Oblivion Feat Geoff Tate
Relentless

Their last album was a pleasant surprise… Basically Geoff Tate is the hired gun vocalist, and musically, it’s prog metal… pretty much a lot like queensryche… probably a bit better (imho) than his solo stuff. Great to hear Tate’s voice in the classic metal style he’s known for.
