Staff review by
Greeks have always had a fascination with the stars. Their ancient forebears glanced up at the night sky and decided upon themselves to give names derived from their mythological traditions to the constellations that they observed. One such name which remains with us today is Cassiopeia who was also a particularly self absorbed queen in Greek mythology. Melodic death outfit Nightfall's latest release, and second since their reformation in 2010, lyrically hinges on human arrogance and such conceited nature as that of queen Cassiopeia, which earned her a position over our heads as a constant reminder of our own vanity.

Not bad but a little bit more diversity would be welcome.
