    This was listed at #7 in the A Year In Review: Our 2020 Favorite Progressive Metal Albums feature article... for fans of djenty prog metal similar to Tesseract, Periphery, etc. Some harsh vocals but not too much to make me turn it off, and more offset by outstanding melodies and harmonies.

    From TimeZone Records page:

    "....Chaosbay from Berlin/Kaiserslautern reach a whole new level with their second full-length album: wildly virtuoso, grown up, aware of their strengths, the group founded in 2012 celebrates their incredibly energetic interplay with almost pedantic perfection at an incredibly rapid pace. Comparisons like Periphery, Karnivool, Tesseract but also Opeth, Porcupine Tree and Dream Theater always seem to come up when speaking of their unique sound. Double bass thunderstorms, djent riffs and evil growls alternate with great melodies, harmony vocals and acoustic guitars. Produced in a modern and uncompromising manner, powerful, virtuoso, tricky and yet always focused on catchy hooklines, the record leads through the nine chapters, between which recurring musical motifs and topics are hidden.
    The album is more up to date than ever. Aside from genre-typical fantasy epics and surreal dream sequences, the band expresses their opinion on racism, xenophobia, the refugee crisis and moral decay in times of capitalism...."
