In 2008, Seventh Wonder released Mercy Falls, a near-perfect concept album seemingly written and performed by demigods, including the coolest prog singer the world had discovered since Roy Khan in Conception. Just like Roy Khan before him, Tommy Karevik eventually joined Kamelot, and life happened to the other members, so the break between their Mercy Falls follow-up The Great Escape and Tiara was eight years long. That's a long time to spend waiting for an album - you can ask me, I got into the band in 2009.

About time. It is being promised since early 2013

But great news it is finally happening.

I'm one of those people who usually needs multiple listens to decide if I like something, but this is absolutely fantastic. Does it top the previous two albums? Time will tell.

Just got my copy in the mail yesterday and went through it once, so far I think this is an excellent album! I'll need more listens to fully digest it but I can already name some favorites like By the Light of the Funeral Pyres, the Farewell trilogy, Victorious, and Dream Machines!

It was a long wait, but the results were worth it for me! Great stuff all around.

I don't know... I've heard about half of this release, and I can't remember anything. Should I bother with the second half at all?

yes, I think it's a classic grower... listens 3,4,5 onwards for me it just got better...

First gig was Manowar (loincloths 'n' all), Bristol Colston Hall in March 1983, on the 'Hail to England' tour. Tickets were £3.75, 300 in the audience, Mercyful Fate never showed, but my hearing still got seriously trashed..
