Ambitious, technical, progressive, instrumental metal that's not also mainly about masturbating over how fast can the guitarist play or how complicated can they program the drum-track? Sign me up!
Favorite track: Infantile.
Such an excellent album... and sadly under the radar for how good it is. Toska is just the latest in a number of progressive bands that have proven the music itself can be a vessel and sometimes words are simply unnecessary. Illumo is one of the tastiest jams I've ever come across. Give these guys some love and a listen, you won't be disappointed.

Blimey, that's a bit of a step up! What a stunning opener.
The title track is great, too.
There's so much more range here than on previous outings - it really is wonderful to listen.
Indeed, Every Piece Matters. Peter Jones
