Description/Reviews
The overall approach is still very much rooted in the classic metal/power metal-meets-prog intersection, meaning that the music is likely to find some favour with those who enjoy bands such as Queensryche and Crimson Glory to name just two. Indeed, these are reference points that Stoltz himself makes.
