Christopher Sellers Walk to the top of the hill where the storm clouds gather, push open the intricately carved wooden door to enter this lush and majestic soundscape - architected by one of the countries premiere progressive artists. The music on this latest EP is dense with quality and detail, rewarding careful and repeated listening. Jame's artistry as a guitarist and composer is maturing like a fine bottle of red, which Gaahl would partake of before an extended inanimate commune with Satan himself. Favorite track: Terraform Diminution.

Laen He only gets better. Tightest, most feelsy prog out there. The last solo, seriously, what the fuck. Favorite track: Terraform Diminution.

amanhassan James Norbert Ivanyi is an incredible guitar player but more importantly he really knows what's good for the music. He never lets technique compromise the music, James has a natural talent for combining jaw dropping technique with soaring musical passages that are ingrained in your head. He has this wonderful sense of rhythm as well. Denalivis is a continuing progression of Jame's past works and it is an another phenomenal release.

friedmanhbe74 Can't say enough GREAT things about this guy!! I was floored when I first heard James play. And that was just the tip of the iceberg! Amazing compositions, phrasing, and chops, James IS the total package! One of my favorite players! It just takes a listen and you'll be hooked! The present and future of guitar!

KP James had defined his sound with each release and this is definitely and unmistakably Ivanyi. A driving piece of progressive metal with layered ‘hammond’ style organ mimicking guitar melody and time signature change stabs. Again David Horgan’s flawless technical and tasteful drums mixed perfectly to drive the whole song. Pray Darkly showcases Jame’s amazing guitar skills clearly separating him from the many daily bedroom releases.

Jai I only discovered JNI last year and immediately fell in love with his musical style. Pray Darkly continues to impress with some amazingly intricate riffs and a beautiful soundscape that makes me impatient for the rest of the EP. Only James can make a guitar sing! Can't wait to hear more mate!!
