Guest review by

Back when Falconer started out they had an amazing vocalist. A Swedish actor by the name of Mathias Blad. His voice was unmatched and together with the playful yet extremely catchy and epic instrumental execution of the music, he and Falconer made two absolutely fantastic albums. Then Mathias left the band due to time reasons. Not only did the fans grieve, the next two albums by Falconer were horrible, too. Then however, something happened which greatly gladdened me. Mathias returned to the band. Next year a new Falconer album hit the shops, and I was amongst the first to buy it. More on the rejoining of Mathias Blad can be read here in my interview, but now let's continue, and see what change this old face brought to the band.

Rating: 8 Perfect album. Absolutely breathtaking, first Falconer album I've listened to, and certainly won't be the last.

Rating: 10 The best Falconer album of all. The return of Mathias bought back the Epicness of Falconer's early works with even better riffs and solo's to support than the previous albums.

Without doubt one of my favourite metal albums ever.
