Staff review by
Is it only me, or do we get very little quality heavy metal recently? Sometimes I want to listen to an album that doesn't attack me with blast beats, lead-heavy riffs, shredding solos, throat-ripping vocals. I don't want it too fast, or too slow. I don't want to be crushed underneath the weight of production. Sometimes I miss the times when Iron Maiden released their best albums, when neither speed nor slowness, nor heaviness were the yardsticks of quality. It was only music that counted.

Really good album, even though it seemed even a bit better on the 1st listen. When it comes to songs I think the longer the better rule applies to this album: "Durendal", "42-7-29" and "Pieces Of Your Smile" are to me the best that this album offers. The shorter songs aren't bad either, but they are missing some of that kind of mood/epicness that the longer songs have.

Live even better than on albu this band. Brian Balich totally nails it live with his vocals.
