"Revivalist thrash" might not be the best way to describe what bands like Hexen have been doing recently. By now, the image that term ultimately conjures up is one of a thickening pack of denimed-out, canned beer shaking youths huddling around thrash's corpse, firing up their defibrillators, reviving it back to life, letting it get up and dust itself off, then defibrillating it again. And then again. And now again... Again.

Still can't make up my mind about this release. I kind of like, but I don't think all the songs are that good and unique, but the epic feel throughout the whole album is very vivid.

Ok I just want to mention that the review made by wormdrink does not give the rightful credit to this album, it is very fucking good Not perfect, but very fucking good.

Better than the 1st album IMO, more prog, more personality and variation in songs, good guitar leads, double leads and riffs combined very well.
