– Headbangers Lifestyle
An album to listen, carefully and to let yourself be carried away.
Recommended for: those who appreciate an original and technical form of progressive metal, but still accessible.
– 4/5 Loud and Proud
“Elements” is a very convincing progressive metal album that should get any fan of prog, power or heavy metal instantly sold. It’s a beautiful, emotional and melodic start that soon builds into a full and satisfying metal soundscape. It sounds like the start to a journey, as it is intended to be.”
9/10 The Metal Observer
“The men play in the service of the song. There is a nice flow in the album and moreover there is enough variation between heavy passages with a wall of sound on the one hand and atmospheric, calm sections on the other hand that let the music breathe. Moreover, there is a balance between complexity and accessibility.”
