Staff review by
Pierre Tombale

The rather slow (or better mid-tempo), but same time powerful and dark to doom sounding 'Headless Cross' album was recorded with singer Tony Martin. In fact with Ozzy the whole thing is not imaginable, for with his Martin's rather strong voice the sound has a deep impact, the spheric keyboards the underline the songs do the rest. You feel like directed from a cemetery right into hell in a late 80's manner.

  Tani Martin sounds like David Coverdale on Black Moon. This is an amazing album, it deserves no less than a 9! "Headless Cross", "When Death Calls" and "Nightwing" are 3 excellent tracks that never get old. The other tracks are also good! It's is a 7.9 just because people can't rate anything that doesn't have Dio or Ozzy higher than 8...
