Halcyon Way
Style: Progressive Metal
Release date: 25 October, 2011
Playing time: 40:50

"IndoctriNation" is the sequel to last year's "Building the Towers" and features five new songs that continue the theme and sound from the album as well as a cover-version of Steel Panther's "Stand Up", a radio edit of "The Age of Betrayal" and an industrial remix of "The System".

I will concentrate on the five new songs because the cover-version is so far from their normal material, the radio edit brings nothing new and the industrial remix is God-damn awful and not my kind of music at all!

The five new songs have intentionally a lot in common with their earlier material and each song fits right in their sound universe; they still carry the spirit and the groove from their first album with them and the more aggressive approach they took with their second album is also very much present here.

Everything is done properly, the production is good and the deliverance is once more top-notch. And if you like their earlier albums then I suggest you check this one out also because this is a solid piece of progressive metal.
