This is a joint venture of Derek Sherinian (keys), Tony McAlpine (guitar), and Virgil Donati (drums). If you know the solo album “Planet X” of former Dream Theater member Derek Sherinian, you know at least the musical category of this album – except that it’s got more heavy guitars on it, thanks to Tony McAlpine. This album is so loud, heavy, dissonant, dense, depressive, and ear-hurting, that it’s a real joy to listen to it. Stylistically, the music is probably a mixture of progmetal and fusion. Anyway you might name it, it’s a breath-taking tour-de-force for your ears. Not for the faint-hearted!
