I do not recommend buying this album, the first one, by the sword and the cross was amazing, if you dont mind less metal more symphonic. this album however, is literally the instrumentals from the first album redone, it dosent even sound like the re recorded the vocals, and it sounds horrible, the only two new songs on the album are the last two, and they are alright.

You guys are way too demanding. You cannot expect a 91 year old guy to pull a Kings of Metal kind of an album. Yeah, the vocals aren't fit for the instrumental, but this album wasn't really intended as a typical metal album, but as a concept based one where the message is more important than the instrumental. Lee's music always revolved more on themes rather than music. It is decent. If you take both performances standalone. But if you take them together, it ain't so great.

Actually the music is good. If Sir C. can strickly only done the narration and replace his vocal it will at least on par with regular power metal album. Start from The Betrayal, then Devil's Advocate it's all enjoyable.

Can't wait to hear it! I just got it on Amazon and I'll make a review of it soon. Christopher Lee is a living god among men with quite a prolific career. Whether or not I listen to this album a lot or not is one thing but it's still quite impressive that someone in his 90s is able to pull something like this off. Got to give Lee major props for that alone.
Ordinary men hate solitude. But the Master makes use of it, embracing his aloneness, realizing he is one with the whole universe (Lao Tzu).
