Guitarbage knows me all too well, this is beautiful. Look at that massive cutaway. The Floyd Rose. Stealth bomber inlays. Wait a minute. Waaait a miiinute! Holy crap there’s only ONE pickup! ONE! 36 frets! OH MAN I’m DROOLING! Seriously, I’ve always wondered if there was a guitar out there with only a single bridge pickup and just an extra long neck. This is amazing.
I picked up this album in a super cheap bin at The Warehouse back in 2001. It was one of the most surprising albums I’d ever purchased. Going by the album cover I had expected muddy-sounding death metal with ruptured esophagus vocals and subterranean production. In other words, more of the usual stuff I listened to back then. Upon playing the CD I was stunned. I was probably even a little disappointed too, until maybe the second time I listened to it.
The song I picked was the first one on the album, as my impression stemmed from there. The riff in the beginning was nice and heavy with good harmonies. Then the prog elements kicked in. I’d been a fan of Dream Theater and Death for years at this point so hearing something new in that vein that actually wasn’t very far off talent-wise was stunning.
The album sounds amazing, and definitely has the early nineties prog metal feel; the heavy bits are heavy and the prog portions are often evocative, even at times airy, but still with the metal edge to it. It foregoes the not-uncommon trappings of a falsetto vocalist, instead employing a gritty tenor sound.
This has been a favorite album for a long time, and for good reason.

I feel like this must be some sort of entrapment or a ploy to increase sales of pepper spray.
