The band’s sound, surprisingly, is a more atmospheric style compared to the average progressive metal band, arguably leaning a bit more towards the alternative sound (or, at a pinch, a metal version of Pink Floyd) than what you might expect from the genre. Obviously, I’m speaking as someone who doesn’t listen to a lot of progressive metal, but I actually like this style of it by comparison to the Dream Theater worship, as it’s the sort of thing which shows a very tasteful restraint and appreciation towards strong songwriting that you actually will want to listen to if you’re not normally a fan of the genre, but is still technically challenging in a way that doesn’t shove itself into your face. It’s basically the Queensryche and Crimson Glory way of doing progressive metal, only with a lot more of a focus on atmosphere compared to them, which is completely fine in my book!
