The most exciting tech metal album debut this year, blending Thrash, Prog, Power, and melody into a new alloy of scorching molten metal sounding a bit like if you tossed TESTAMENT, ZERO HOUR and SYMPHONY X and ALICE IN CHAINS into a blender with a few ice cubes possibly?
Here we have a technical metal band, the ferocity of their playing is only matched by the amount of melody brought forth by vocalist Fred MarshalL (Ex - Zero Hour), Fred brings forth an interesting vibe similar to that of Layne Staley, yet not soundling like him. Featuring veteran rhythm section Steve DiGiorgio (Death, Autopsy, Control Denied, Testament, Vintersorg, Iced Earth, and Sadus) and Jon Allen (Sadus, Testament, and Dragonlord) Christian Wentz (Circle II Circle) and one of the most downloaded guitarists from mp3.com Mark Pattison.
Buy or Die for all tech metal and prog metal fans.

technically and sonically pure Review by steveroush
"Memoirs Of A Broken Man" is technically and sonically pure. It assaults the ears (in a good way) with a barrage sound that can only be appreciated with the volume on your iPod turned all the way up. "Inner Self" perfectly blends Fred Marshall's coarse vocals with Lance King's melodic tones to make for what I think may be the cds best track. Christian metalheads looking for quality power metal will really enjoy this album. (Posted on 7/27/13)
