Rating: 8 Hope they keep in the same vein as the last one. One of the most surprising albums of last year.

They have a song on youtube from the new album, definitely like the previous album with some awesome guitar work and vocal melodies in there.
Coming out next month already!

It was good but too noisy for me. I hope they enhance their songwriting a bit just like Dragonforce did with their new album...

Haha, from the first two songs released from this album I doubt that's going to happen. I do hope there's some slower and less intricate parts in there, though.

I took it there for a minute but I had to remove them... can't keep inaccurate information up like that.

Although I'll admit I Googled it to see if they were legit.

Kudos for taking that extra step Still though, a Fifth Element based album would be pretty boss.

Rating: 8 This album is weird for me. I loved their first album and was curious about how good the second one would be.

I have already listen to it more than 30 times (iTunes tells me) and I still haven't got tired of it so that has to be good, right? Still, there is nothing, with the exception of the start of the song "March to the Darkest Horizon" that really makes me feel like: WOW!"

Not really sure how to rate this one. I'll give it a 8 for now.

Rating: 5 I'm not even sure if I can rate this. I liked the first album because it has some good songwriting and excellent instrumentation, the band is talented. And the vocals do kind of annoy me, but I was able to overlook it because it was a breath of fresh air in the genre.

But this...the songwriting isn't great, it's lacking memorable hooks and a definite direction. The hooks that it does have are awkward and irritating. There is random crap scattered all over it, the vocals are all over the place, the songs seem discordant and don't have a good flow, there is a lot of random wanking. Not tasteful. It's frustrating to listen to. It's like they'll start with a musical idea that sounds like it's going to go somewhere and then it turns into a giant musical mound of noodling and schizophrenic leads.

In my view, if a power metal band wants to be unbelievably cheesy and wanky, they should also try to be memorable and to have a more definite structure. Dragonforce has seemed to improve upon this with their last album, they still wank, but they also write a song that isnt just a random assortment of pieces of wankery. Their singer sounds like he's singing for a purpose, and it may be a cheesy purpose, but it's not just singing for the hell of it which is what this sounds like.

And so I think that I'm going to start calling out power metal bands that I would have otherwise given a pass because their guitarists can shred. I can rate it now.

  This band should have more fans ,more acceptance, Well, as I see it, I have a prediction, this group has the best weapons to become in a very very near future, in one of the best bands in Metal, I'm sure they will soon sign with Nuclear Blast

Completely agree. Loved the first album as it brought something fresh to the Rhapsody Of Fire genre. The new one REALLY disappointing. What happened to the vocals? Saying fuck all the time isn't power metal.
TheAlmightyOdin - 22.01.2013 at 06:27  
Rating: 10 If you guys think saying "fuck" four times in an album that's an hour long, you've got another thing coming (Judas Priest pun intended). There are death core albums that are no longer than 30 mins that say "fuck" at least four times in every song. That's all the time. Many power metal bands occasionally swear in songs, and many also have moments of harsh vocals.

Personally, I absolutely loved this album. For me, BTSBTT was close to perfect, and this one, is perfect. Everything from the vocals to the orchestrals to the songwriting was amazing.

One of my buddies told me "you always listen to Fifth Element". Irritated, I responded "get used to it".

Rating: 8 I love this album! Though I'm fully ready to admit that it's VERY cheesy. It's just... um... the good kind of cheese? I love power metal but when it gets too over-the-top I'm out. For some reason, this one is over-the-top but I still enjoyed it. Can't explain why.
