Rating: 10 I really don't know how this album is so underrated. It's really a great work! IMO Best gothic album from 2009.

  I think it's quite well rated...however, for me this album is also the best one out of gothic picks for last year.

You're definitely right, just masterpiece I love listening to Trail Of Tears albums especially "Profoudemonium" "New Dimension Of Might" and "Existentia"

Rating: 7 Not a bad album, but I find pretty boring compared to many other Trail Of Tears records. Maybe it's because it sounds more like symphonic metal than gothic metal at most times.
