Hey Paul, Having listened to the new album many times, I can't help but think of Ray Alder when I hear you song, especially during the harmonized vocals. Would you call yourself a fan of his work in Fates Warning or Redemption? What other bands were you and the other guys in the band listening to while writing and recording the new disc? I am very pleased with the album. So far, it is the only prog metal disc I enjoy from start to finish this year. Hopefully with the release of Dream Theater, Vangough, and Arch/Matheos, I'll have a few more to add to the list. By the way, here's my review of the new disc: http://www.seaoftranquility.org/reviews.php?op=showcontent&id=11277 Hope it helps spread the word a bit. Thanks!
