Very good band from Baltimore, which plays a symphonic Neo Prog music with total influence of Peter GABRIEL's era GENESIS, MARILLION and PINK FLOYD. The musicianship is very good, but the vocals are real GABRIEL clone like.
"Children" is perhaps a bit more to my taste as it employs more of a 70's feel, particularly with the keyboard sounds. "A Story Two Days Wide", their most adventurous work to date, is one of their best album, on a level playing field with noted bands such as IQ, PENDRAGON, and ARENA. If this fact doesn't bother you, ILUVATAR is highly recommended for your collection! http://www.progarchives.com
