Hubi Meisel is telling the story about the Himalayas, Tibet and ancient Buddhist/Hindu mythology - a journey across the icy heights of the Himalayas up to the legendary holy mountain Mt. Kailash (Pictured on the cover I guess?). Musically this story is told with a nice combination of melody and progressive metal, it's symphonic and there are some nice Far Eastern elements included as well.

Just like a mountain this album has its peak: "Wheel of Life" - this song alone is worth your money! Outstanding composition, brilliant guitars, excellent melody-lines and I could go on and on... this song is simply awesome. I wish the rest of the songs reached the same level, but most of them ends up being OK, nothing special... so I am left with a decent album with one killer tune.

If you are into progressive metal, then I suggest that you at least once take a listen to the above mentioned song, maybe you dig the album a bit better than I did, because Hubi is without a doubt a very good vocalist, so do check it out.
