El_Cuervo How these guys had flown under my radar until now blows my mind. Those looking for Opeth-y prog deaths should apply.

The death is groovy and sometimes mind-bending in its dissonance, while the prog is detailed and interesting. A great package, from the musicianship, to the songwriting, to the decent production. Favorite track: The Fevered Spirit.

Masayume Wow, einfach nur wundervoll!
Sehr vielseitig in Melodie, Tempo, Dynamik und Instrumentation.
Aber am besten finde ich die Vielstimmigkeit des Gesangs: von tiefem Growlen ueber klaren Gesang bis zu hohen Stimmen, die mich an das legendaere Argus-Album von Wishbone Ash erinnern.
Weiter so - keep up the good work! Favorite track: Ethereal Organisms.

nick elliott hopelessly addicting and keeps your attention even throughout the long songs which comprises most of the content. I haven't stopped playing it since i got it and i love it more and more every time. 9.5/10, a future classic Favorite track: Ethereal Organisms.

Ian Gillings Brain batteringly stunning from start to finish. This is only the second full length album from Spires and it sounds so utterly accomplished. Dense in arrangement and dynamic in transition, there is too much here to digest so soon, I feel this is going to be in the player for quite some time to come!
Quite simply, a masterpiece. Favorite track: The Whisperer.
