For an album that deals primarily in apparitions that lack a truly physical presence, it is quite solid. It also has a great chorus. Instanzia plays a form of power metal that has become a rarity over the last few years. The vocal work of front man and guitarist Alexis Woodbury is a bit squeaky clean and reminiscent of Tony Kakko without much of his upper range, and though is performed quite adequately, does come off as a tiny bit vanilla at times. My personal favorites off of the album illustrate this point perfectly. This album is certainly for fans of the more melodic side of Power Metal, though I’d say anyone can and should give it a shot, as there’s precious little to dislike here. It isn’t a highly complex or virtuosic album, but makes up for this in sheer memorability.
