This is the third in a series of Allen/Lande albums and fans of Jorn Lande (Masterplan, Jorn, etc) and Russell Allen (Symphony X, etc) will love how their voices continue to blend together and complement each other. I hesitate to use words like "generic" because usually that has a negative connotation. This album IS generic heavy metal, just not necessarily in a bad way. It's fun metal music with some vocalists we love and wanted more from. Yeah, it's a side project for both guys, but this album kind of rocks and they certainly deliver performances near worthy of their primary bands. Each man has such richness to his voice and an inherent emotional quality.

Sweet!! I love Russel and Jorn's dueling voices! Hopefully this cd is as great as their first album. I didn't care for The Revenge too much.

Agreed. I honestly find this album and the others to be phenomenal. Moreover, arguably both Jorn and Allen show their best work here.
