This ten track album, the second by this band from the United Arab Emirates, is divided into two “sequences”, each comprising five tracks. I didn’t consciously notice the divide as even by prog metal standards, “All is Not for All” is a substantial affair. In fact its multitude of rhythms and patterns and styles are so overwhelming that it might be a case of “more is less”. From calm openings, it breaks out into Opeth style prog metal, classic prog, harsh elements and even mild suggestions of symphony and ethnic elements. But most of all this has the emotional depth charge of a Dream Theater production and artists of their ilk.
