Dogma's debut album is not a bad example of modern symphonic rock. It falls close to the instrumental style that Pendragon started on with the second part of "Alaska" from The Jewel. No vocals here, and instead, long instrumental tracks of excellent melodic music in the neo-progressive vein. At the time, the best new Brazilian band since Quaterna Requiem. Marcus Viana of Sagrado Coracoa De Terra also adds some violin to one track.
