    Little sample medley up. Sounds good.

    I've been following these guys for several years and have been playing this record nonstop since the press copies went out. It's absolutely magnificent. Almost guaranteed top 5 album for 2015 and currently my album of the year. Only the elite such as Vanden Plas have a reasonable shot at knocking this one down.

    Their first album was good. The second was great. Very much looking forward to this release.

    This new release is their best work yet- hands down.

    Having lived with the full release for a couple of weeks now, I must say it did not disappoint. Certain to be one of the top prog metal releases of 2015.

    Ok now that "Searching For Eternity" has been out for a few months, I can honestly say that its sitting in the top 3 for 2015 midway through the year. As I sit here listening to it I think to myself..."Why aren't I listening to this more often?" It is an incredible slab of glorious progressive metal, at times reminiscent of Dream Theater and yet with their own distinct sound. The vocals are some of the best that I've heard recently, reminding me of Khan/Karevik/Erickson/LaBrie at times and his higher register just struck me as a "midnight-esque" range. He has an amazing smooth delivery with nary an accent There's something I can't place a finger on yet but he is amazing!

    The disc is great from start to finish and compares to Withem's debut for new progressive metal. I'm going to keep digesting this for awhile!

    Not too high on prog metal anymore, but this is one of the few ones I heard in 2015 from that style that really clicked. Very good stuff.

    One of my top 5 this year as well. Some songs have a very Fates Warningish sound to them. They just keep getting better with each album!

    A 2015 release and it's already impossible to find a new disc for sale anywhere for a reasonable price.

    It doesn't help that they disbanded before the release of this and they are pretty much an obscure band. Good luck in your search though

    And it appears the label may have closed down, too. There is no sign Spectastral Records even existed as their website and Facebook pages are gone. I messaged the label owner but didn't get a definitive answer.

    That would explain it, I guess. :(
