Canadian band release their 2nd excellent album of dark, epic, heavy Devil-rock with female vocals buried back in the song mix and classic guitars building & roaring, while keyboards soar & flutes chime in pursuit of their version of prog-rock Heaven (i.e. Hell). The band plays their instruments in a very unforced & "real" way, with an addictive ritualistic omnipotence. This has the feel of an exceptional, unknown early 70s prog/metal band. Pure and powerful in its doom-laden occultism and straightforward, sonic Satanic crunch. Reminiscent--in the best possible retro sense--of bands like Jethro Tull, Fuzz Manta, Jex Thoth, Deep Purple, Baroness, Uriah Heep, Black Sabbath, Led Zeppelin, Alice Cooper, etc.
