Multi-instrumentalist Tuomas Saukkonen has made quite a name for himself in the melodic metal scene, his name synonymous with Before The Dawn, Dawn Of Solace, and lastly, Black Sun Aeon. If you're keeping count, that's two albums released this year and five albums in the last three. Efficient, sure - but unfortunately not proficient.

Rating: 6 Can't wait for the album. It will be anyway another great job.

  Tuomas , you're a genius. I cannot define a genre to your songs because they are a genre in itself.Keep it going!

  Ugh. Boring, slow, generic... This is not what I was expecting at all. Terribly disappointed with this.

Oh well. Before the Dawn wasn't awful.

slow, generic...

tl,dr version of Black Sun Aeon The one man army still does a pretty decent job overall. People might find this album quite repetitive because most of the tracks similarly have a part change on the final third. "Sheol" is probably the best track.

Really?! you are very strange, this is the best thing Tuomas Saukonen have ever done.
I proudly gave this album a 10

Rating: 6 Is it really so much better than the last ones? I always considered them quite good but somewhat forgettable.

By the way, you should check out his earlier project Dawn Of Solace - something between Before The Dawn and Black Sun Aeon, but rather unknown, unfortunately.

I think it's the weakest to date unfortunately. And if you thought the previous albums were forgettable, you won't want to go anywhere near this.

  I would have probably liked it more if there was no female vocalist, she sounds pretty lame.
