This year's monumental work of progressive rock and progressive metal comes from Max Enix, bears the concise title 'Far From Home' and captivates for other 160minutes !
-Fireworks Magazine (The Biggest UK Mag) / MASTERPIECE "The whole venture be extremely rewarding ! You will requiere patience and multiple listens before the album reveals all of its secrets, but if you have the time to do so you will discover a record that is deeply affecting. Moving on the orchestral version of the Album. The rearranged versions of these songs sound like the greatest version of a Hans Zimmer or Howard Shore soundtrack from a film that you've never seen and they are richly rewarded in their own right. Sweeping and Epic. I would not be surprised if the composer was hired to produce the music for big Hollywood Blockbusters in the very near future. If there was a remake of "Lawrence of Arabia" , Enix would be the man I'd ask to do the music." ?

-RockHard Italy AWESOME review by Emanuele Biani, DPRP (Holland) AWESOME Words, Rocknytt (Swe), Radio Erdorin (Fr), This is Rock (Es), PowerPlay Magazine / The genuine emotion Enix has for his music is clear to pick up in his vocals. I can't say I loved them , but there's no doubt he has talent. Enix should be proud of his achievement; this is a monumental project he's put together, and he should be applauded for the sheer effort it must have taken. Between others...
-Masterpiece by Ahasverus Cornelius (Fr) / "Monumental/Magistral Mieux qu'un opéra métal, au-delà des productions qu'on nous présente habituellement sous cette bannière, Max Enix réalise ici une véritable symphonie, une oeuvre hors-normes qui tient aussi bien du métal progressif que de la musique classique. Le résultat global est proprement impressionnant, réalisé sans temps mort ni fausse note. "
-Josh Rundquist (Heavy Debriefings USA): Far From Home is one of the Best Album of the month ! And Ahasverus Cornelius (Fr): Max Enix artist of the month ! https://heavydebriefings.weebly.com/written-material/june-30th-2023?fbclid=IwAR2zCAJwvQCfBJApZXAAdm--4hxp4N-c45fMKhC4NqXo_Gb-HXYxu4LZX6k
Excellent Review (84%) by Via Nocturna (Portugal) ! But I'm french and not Italian ! And no programmed drums on this record it's a mistake because it's Leo Margarit from Pain Of Salvation who have made brilliantly the different drums parts on the double Album !
-Orkus Magazin (De): Far From Home is called as Epic Cinematic MASTERPIECE ! "Far From Home" is like a varied adventure, so that the double album, which does not shy away from pieces of more than 10 minutes, should be enjoyed from beginning to end.
-AWESOME REVIEW / 4.9 Stars on 5 Music Existence (US) ! https://musicexistence.com/blog/2023/07/17/album-review-max-enix-far-from-home/?fbclid=IwAR1hbrcEe5hb5BqPG4KqYCBSAcFW29p9m-fPjMt_gOufxVrRyz73Riyu96E
It is truly a work of Art."
-AWESOME Review 8/10 ! SoundMagnet (De) ! "Densely packed Cineastic Progressive Metal with orchestral violence. In addition to the vocals of Max Enix himself, who does a great job and is quiet varied, the female vocals are sung by Elise Wachbar and cut an equally good figure. For fans of symphonic metal with cinematic means and a lot of mass and class, Max Enix has a musical feast in store.

Awesome Review (nl) ! Excerpt: Try to imagine a mix of Jeff Wayne's War Of The World, Hans Zimmer's film music, the prog rock of Dream Theater and the sound of Ayreon and you will get an idea of what to expect on this album. Max's powerful and sensitive vocals along the double Album. Far From Home by Max Enix is a very impressive concept album and an album that should easily find a place in the collection of every progmetal fan! The very beautifully designed textbook should also be mentioned.

Excerpt: The use of male and female vocals alone brings a lot to the table, and as far as the songs are concerned, they already offer a lot of variety with their suspense arcs and both tempo and heaviness changes.
The orchestral version is what it says, the songs were recorded in orchestral style and are reminiscent of the soundtrack of the Schwarzenegger film "Conan".
In conclusion, a varied work with many twists and intelligent compositions. The entire album is worth a listen.
-METAL HAMMER GREECE 8/10 Passion is the beginning and the end of Far From Home. Passion for Art without limits, for unbridled creation and the elevation of man as a being and not as a consumer product. ?? Listen to it again and again and you will constantly discover something new.
"An extremely talented artist, one of those who doesn't just do calculations and measurements with the eyes on the number of sales, but dedicated himself soul and body to his Art. ?? Max Enix brings out his innermost soul, both musically and lyrically, in a way that you cannot resist and what he tells us is indicative of what it happens in his mind." ?

Majestic, magnificent, meandering and moving. For the entire two hours and forty minutes, 'Far From Home' is a captivating and engaging slab of grandeur - definitely not an anthemic driving album!
'Far From Home' has something for every one, whether you're a fan of Dream Theater, Opeth, Nightwish, Katatonia, Pink Floyd, Freddie Mercury, or David Bowie. And as an added bonus, there's gonna be an "orchestral version" of the album released later this year! As if 'Far From Home' couldn't get any better - yes it will!
Overall, an extraordinary and elegant journey of atmospheric symphonic rock and metal, and so much more.
-Lots of others to come...

*Max Enix / Far From Home
One of the Best and most Ambitious Double Album ever made ! A colossus ! Expect things you've never heard / see before !
*"Trying to review this album is like trying to review a skyscraper; it doesn't care; it just keeps going! And let me be absolutely clear those are words of praise. Monstruous, Monumental. Let's just say that Far From Home is so good that I've listened to it 8 times since he shared it with us last week. It gets better with each time. It's the one album that I consider to be "perfect, I think yours may be the first -out of the more than 8,000 I've heard in the last 5 years . It gets better with each time. Since I'm in "techie-mode" now, I'll translate my praise into a number: that comparison means your is in the top 0.0119% of all the albums I've heard since the beginning of 2018. The voices are impressive. Already in the top Albums of 2023 ! A Future classic !" Between many outstanding feedback in the world !
*"Never heard since David Bowie, Pink Floyd... There is one in a million like you ! Completely in tune with our times ! An earthquake ! A double album that will change the face of the world"
*"As one continues their musical journey -a musical journey that is epic, grand, powerful, unique and magical and something different, fresh -again special and truly will capture the listener’s ears, heart and soul—simultaneously, as I was inking this review, I was so lost and transfixed with this release and with this feeling that “Far From Home” is a release where this whole thing should be played without skipping any tracks, a release to find that right moment, sit back and chill and let this musical spectrum flow through your ears and speakers.
A Universe of epic, emotional & engaging Musical Journey ”
At the same time, “Far From Home” is delivered and provided by impressive and skilled (all wrapped professionally/sophisticated arrangements) craftsmanship, musicianship and showmanship, and not just Max but a handful of guests that gives the listener this masterpiece that consists of incredible music, instrumentation, lyrics, story-concept that’s all well-executed, beautifully score and composed -where each composition/characteristics are convenient to place at the right moment. Thus, giving the listener this “Music is art, and art should know no boundaries” of Avant Garde never heard before fusion that consists of awe-inspiring multi-verse of instrumentation artistry of (technical/complex) guitar and drum work that utilises various tones, tempos, atmosphere, moods, virtuoso riffs/multi-cords, rhythms, melodic passages, various drum beats/fills and patterns, vocal work consists of multiple tones, ranges, and clean male/female singing/operatic sections. In contrast, one will find other elements within the musical spectrum/instrumental and vocals (pulls the music together!), which included progressive-symphonic-post rock/metal, film scores/sound effects with diverse aspects of world/New Age, Hip hop, Jazz, international variety and others.
A compelling and astonishing result -with a magical spark of beauty, epic, grand, bold and breathless sensation. At the same time, the Orchestral version of “Far From Home” hit me and transported me away to somewhere tranquil and the loss of time… truly the second part is unique and breathtakingly beautiful. Take a moment to listen to both versions—simultaneously, the piano work gives me that “Freddie Mercury” and sometimes, sections of the music (within the songs) give that (German acts) “Helloween/Gamma Ray” vibe -spine-chilling sensation."
*"I have checked your album "Far From Home" and wow... I have been blown away. These songs are absolutely killer...
Where to start...well for sure from the part where I say that I love it. It’s absolutely great, Symphonic and Technical but in a catchy way and tuneful.
It is very difficult to find precise influences, because the conceptual level of the compositions ranges between various stylistic strands, keeping in a very precise way, centred and very focused on a certain Symphonic Prog with a Metal vein. The project has a lot of personality, thanks also to a fluid writing and an absolutely convincing execution. The double album has no weak points thanks to unquestionable compositional skills. This is the decisive union that gives you a unique stylistic imprint that always maintains a high maturity and intensity. The songs as well as the project itself have their own specific identity that is extremely personal. The vocal work is awesome as well as all the instrumental parts. Guitars, orchestrations, keyboards and rhythm section are powerful and they do a great job in the composition and arrangements. An epic project full of quality ideas, lyrics and sounds are highly researched and original. I haven't listened to a record of this sound matrix for a long time.
There’s quite a lot of variation in the songs but it sounds like a solid album and doesn’t sound like a compilation....This means that you are really mature songwriting-wise. The level of the album is always high, (from the beginning to the end) and there are no boring or low moments. I think that your style and sound are quite original. A combination of many, ranging from Symphonic Prog to Technical and more Metal influences, but I can’t relate you to any other act in particular and this is a great point, this means that you sound unique. Professional production, recordings and mix....Well done, I really like your product! We can absolutely talk further."
Max Enix "Far From Home" is a fusion of progressive-symphonic-post rock/metal , filmscore with diverse elements of world/New Age, Hip hop, Jazz, international variety and others (Avant Garde never heard before) ! For Fans of Devin Townsend, Dream Theater, Hans Zimmer, Pain of Salvation, Opeth, Ayreon, Enigma, Era, Therion, Nightwish, Rhapsody, Pink Floyd, Anathema, Freddie Mercury, David Bowie, Katatonia, Empyrium, Arcturus, Marillion and many many others But with a Universe of its own (Beyond music and words) ! EPIC AND UNIQUE ! Stay tuned <3
I consider myself as a precursor like many artists in the world and the goal is to change some aspects of this society ! I have my Own Vision ! Staying humble in what you do is the key !
*This concept album will be completely in tune with today’s world and what might happen, the consequences to come... It will deal with the beauty of Life..., the human condition, will be turned towards spirituality and will also denounce the human stupidity on certain points and the actions not to be reproduced any more (the corruption, the conditioning, the oppression, sick communautarism, indoctrination, thirst and abuse of power, abusive interests, the tyranny, the exploitation, the forced work, the domination, the law of « do or die », the religious fanaticism, mythomania, the poisoned thrones of bastards, the divisions, the violence, the fake news, data use, the blindness, the I don't care attitudes etc...)
*I hope that people will come to realize through this project how bad, fake and nasty some humans can be around.

*Concept Album with elaborate story and lyrics (around 2h40 of music for each versions)
*Dream Theater (leader of the progressive rock/metal scene) won a Grammy Awards for a 10min epic composition called "The Alien" ahead of Gojira, Deftones, Rob Zombie, Mastodon...! Very epic and long songs are their trademark so it's a very good moment for epic songs like these ones (Hans Zimmer or others).
*Beautiful Illustration here by Thomas Ewerhard. Thomas have made Wonderful illustrations and is currently finalizing the beautiful booklet.
Niklas Sundin: Max Enix Logo
*This double album recorded with the Budapest symphony orchestra will offer a unique sound and atmosphere and will mix different genres (film score, progressive , post and symphonic rock/metal, world music/new age, Jazz, international variety, hip hop among other sounds...
With much more Epic, Emotional, engaged and complex/hard songs this time than before.
*This universe is one of a kind:
hard, avant-garde, but also poetic, mysterious, romantic, enigmatic...
Day and Night/ From the shadows to the light
*I have composed all this album alone, by myself this time on keyboard (strings...), piano among others (12 long tracks including the last one of 26min and 2 intros CD 1 and CD 2. There will be different video clips...
*No I'm not a music theory expert like many... I have my own methodology like Hans Zimmer and many others and I know how to call on the right people to accompany me on my artistic adventures ! My artistic universe is wide and unique ! Emotions are the most important things for me in Art ! But some people don't understand that... And beware of people who want to put themselves forward, wrongly and cover themselves (envious because they don't have your talent and who take you for idiots, that they are ! Fuck them! ) ! Protect your world ?

*"Tears of Earth" epic video clip / In this ambitious Video clip (3D with Unreal Engine) you will see the beauty of nature, the elements together, the cosmos, the Earth and the planets/galaxies around, the space conquest, the creation and some very enigmatic and mysterious things ! View from above embodied by other intelligences beyond humans... Against the humans who wants to destroy the environment with machines, unnecessary wars, domination, stupid trivialities and others that leads to chaos... In August 2023

*It's a real pleasure to work with them because they understand exactly what I want and we are on the same page. It's not always the case, and I feel lucky for that.
*I will publish all my compositions (instrumental demos) of the upcoming Albums (Far From Home 2h35...) when it's time after the release (piano, keyboards, choirs, strings parts for orchestrations, some instrumental indications and others...) ! Once the orchestrations were received... All the vocal parts were rethought and elaborated at home (including those of the guests) and recorded and then transformed sometimes in the studio (if necessary).
*A unique sound and atmosphere... Never heard before !
