Alteration is the debut album by Australian/Indonesian band Altera Enigma, recorded over 2 years and released on January 2006.[2][3] The emotional and sophisticated style found on the album drew comparisons to Liquid Tension Experiment, Gordian Knot, and Cynic.[3]

A music video was released for the bonus/outtake track "Perpetual Motion".[4]

Style[edit]

Alteration mainly features a mixture of progressive metal and jazz fusion, but contains many other diverse musical styles such as electronica and dark ambient.[1] Jason DeRon has stated in an interview that while he does not like the term "progressive metal", he feels that it is the closest description that can be used.[5]
