When I saw this news message, I was instantly excited about this. I had mixed emotions: part of me expected the song to be awesome, part of me feared that the music will be completely different (in a bad way).

And well...this song still has the Stormlord feel, but it's not that noticeable from the first few notes. The orchestral composition is more akin to Summoning with a stronger production (which is how the song starts). The music itself on this track was a bit mellow (compared to songs like I am Legend), despite the growls and the fast drumming. I blame the quite dominant sound of the keyboards. But it's hardly a bad thing. Also, on this song, at least one of the folk instruments was heard. I don't know the name in English unfortunately.
Well, about the guitars, vocals and drums - everything is similar to what you'd expect from Stormlord. The main changes were in the keyboard department and in this song, the beautiful female voice.

So in total...this song was pure awesome, but I hope that it's not the highlight of the album, because if it's not, this album may very well end up as my favourite album of the year.
I am NOT a musician, so I do not judge bands by skill. I judge them on how I like the sound.
