Pfft, Disillusion are such amateurs. They couldn't even make it a full 13 years without releasing a new album.

Just seven songs?
Back To Times Of... ...overlong and nested tracks?

Anyway, nice to see their Patreon campaign led to a deal with Prophecy. I'm curious about the result.

Just listened to it for the first time today. In my mind, this is AOTY hands down. It's definitely a step back towards the style of BTTOS, but it's not BTTOS pt 2, but rather a much darker version. Something in between ALEA and BTTOS. It's more mellow, but explodes at time. Excellent vocal work. I like the production. Instrumentation is stellar, of course, and a story music-wise that draws you in. The only drawback is that I can't see how they are going to follow this up? Maybe this will be their last? Let's hope not!

In my first listen, I would say that The Liberation stands out, but they are all excellent songs. Btw, there is an eighth track called Between. A bonus song for the Patreon supporters.

Also an extended version for one of the songs. I have been a Patreon member since the beginning of their journey.

Completely agree with you! I'm only struggling a bit with "The Mountain", I guess it may or may not grow on me with time. But the rest is just terrific. The vocals are really great and I'm happy with the production as well.

Back to times of splendour pretty much sums up this album, stylistically and qualitatively.

I love this track. It's either my favorite or second favorite after Wintertide. The horn section in the middle is by far the best part on the album, for me - really beautiful. Really feels like some revelation found in solitude on this mountain. Everything that follows is great as well. The solo.

Definitely not. However, I would say it's like chapter 2 in a larger story. There's that callback on the first track that kind of sets this up.

This is how you do a comeback album after 13 years (looking at you, Tool).

Boy have they knocked it out the park on this one. I don't think it'll overtake BTTTOS, but it'll be much closer than I could've expected.

I was a little scared because I didn't know I could expect from this new record, but the truth is it's a very good combination of "Back To Times Of Splendor" and "Gloria"

What a musical journey!!! Instant classic! They are definitely back!!!
And I love that they kept both sides of their genre (prog & metal) unlike some other prog bands that I could name..
