Rating: 6 I could be mistaken.. But for me it sounds like far-Summoning.. Like everything could be heard before.. Without any innovations..

Rating: 9 I actually like this more than Summoning.

Rating: 10 Yeah i have to say, i prefer this album over anything Summoning wrote. The MAIN reason, is because every song was amazing. On most Summoning albums there is filler even though the good songs are of the same calibre as CB.

Rating: 6 This is a less organically structured Summoning. It's good. It's not as good as Summoning. It doesn't slowly build up layers over time like Summoning does, but its not bad for what it is. I could have done without the shitty drum machine and the guitar solos. (It sounds like they used Quantum Leap's VST Goliath for their orchestra or something similar; if that's the case, they could have done more with it.)

I think the guitar solos add a new dimension to the songs. usually not found in songs of similar structure.

Rating: 9 ^ agreed , the guitar solos are welcome here.

Agreed. Summoning is Summoning and CB is CB, although the style is quite similar.

Rating: 9 The clean vocals reminds me of the singer from To/Die/For at times.

Rating: 10 First time I hear this album I think It will sounds average. But more and more I listen this, this actually beautiful perfect.
All songs are so great especially 'Wild Autumn Wind ', 'A Voice Born of Stone and Dust' and, 'Book of Fallen'.
"Echoes of Battle" is IMO Influence from Summoning. Thanks to them. Without them this album never perfect.
