Debut full-length of Turkish Progressive Metal band with thrash rhythms and eastern influences (somewhat of a Turkish, Egyptian, Middle Eastern vibe). Altona manages to display their musical prowess and overall solid songwriting skills to create a well done progressive metal album. Many of the songs often time span their length allowing the instruments to take control and dominate the album. Altona have an impression debut on their hands, it's highly progressive metal with a intriguing vibe. Impressive musical talent reigns, with a strong bass and powerful rhythm section all with strong melodic leads and a decent vocal delivery, there isn't much wrong going on here. It's definitely mood music, atmospheric and powerful, but at times lacking with too much mellow and not enough oomph! Altona starts off strong though lacks a bit at the end, still an interesting listen, though should have stuck with a little more of the metal parts and less progressive doodling.
