prog_dude This album blew my mind like in the old days when I discovered Haken. Holy crap... this album is prog at its very best.
I definitively want to see you live one day, when this fucking virus is finally gone!

progdolphin Yes, power metal still can be relevent.

More than just rippin riffs, thumpin bass, splashy skins, and cinematic synths, Scardust delivers not just a strong and diverse vocal performance from Noa but also beautiful choral arrangements... and a hurdy gurdy. Overtures don't work for a lot of reasons on many metal albums, but the skill in arrangement allows that track (and all the others) its own identity here. The elegance in composition for this sophomore album truly astounds me. Favorite track: Mist.

c_c_chaos One of the most intriguing and convincing genre-transcending albums I've encountered in years. I can't wait to see what Scardust are going to do next. Favorite track: Overture for the Estranged.
