  Expect a lot from this upcoming new album. An amazing and underrated band.

Rating: 9 Can't wait for this album. Still listen to the last one once a week a least.

  Even though their last one disappointed me, definitely looking forward to this one since I love Evolution Purgatory

  This one is in Hetfield, I mean, the table, since 6 or 7 years ago... I hope the wait will be worth...

Rating: 6 They have a new one? Why was I not informed...
Any place where I can listen to this? Can't find it on the youtubes.

Rating: 9 I can already tell, that this is the best power metal album of 2014

Rating: 7 On further listening, I'm actually a little disappointed by this in comparison to their previous album(s). When Eden Burns is without question my favorite album of theirs, and perhaps my expectations where a little high (as they should be), but this album didn't share a lot of those soaring choruses that nearly every song on When Eden Burns had. It's a great album, but I was hoping for more.

I noticed this too about the lack of "souring" courses. Piet Sielck of Iron Savior provided backing vocals on Evolution Purgatory and When Eden Burns, which I'm thinking they layered his vocals on top of Jens to made the "souring" effect. After the stint with Piet leaving Savage Circus, he wasn't available for backing vocals this time around. I still enjoy this album more than their previous albums, though.

Rating: 8 Great album...But not as good as the previous 3. I think it's not as catchy but I dunno

I was unaware that Piet was providing the backing vocals (I just assumed Jens was performing the backing vocals as well). Now that you mention the album lacking them, it completely stands out. Wow, it's amazing what happens when something as seemingly trivial as backing vocals has such a profound impact upon its absence.

  Very nice!

Rating: 8 I seriously thought this was Blind Guardian's Hansi Kürsch side project. I really did. The guy has a really good voice and the instrumental is solid and catchy, but retaining the heaviness. It's a really well-crafted Power Metal album and I cant help to find it funny how this band falls so much under a copy-cat category when Fiction Maze delivers music thats just so much better than what so many Power bands are creating.

  The singer does sound very Kirsch.

The album is well crafted but I just can't help feel I should be listening to Blind Guardian instead.

Still haven't found a full youtube copy to listen to either.
