Based in Switzerland, Max Enix has released an ambitious high-concept double-album featuring three lengthy pieces that are as stimulating as they are exhausting. At 26 minutes, the album’s title track “Far From Home” delivers an onslaught of alternating energies, from rock, to symphonic, to rap, to solo, to metal, to staccatto drum machine, along with male and female vocal turns. Lyrics are often hard to decypher, but the issues are conveyed with melodramatic, operatic urgency. “Prayer of the Gods” features metal-maven energy and fiery fretwork. Enix’s most appealing piece is “City of Mortals,” which contains soft and sombre interludes that allow the overwhelmed human ear to recover from recent audio abuses.
