Staff review by
Trail Of Tears come back with their fourth full-length album and the first one without a female vocalist in their ranks. How will this affect the music? The album is more aggressive? They use electronic elements? Who is in charge of the vocal department now? for that and more, stay tuned.

After voluptuous female singer Helena Iren Michaelsen left the band many thought that it was the end of it, then two years later they released "A New Dimension Of Light" release that went unnoticed among many Metalheads. Now after 3 years of the last album they're back, and this time without any chick handling vocals to perform the oh-so-famous "beauty and the beast" duet.

I guess, I'm a part of the minority here because this is actually the Trail Of Tears album I love the most (along with A New Dimension Of Might). The music is very good and the duet of Ronny Thorsen and Kjetil Nordus sounds magical to my ears.
