Had I discovered this in the early stages of my infatuation with the broad variety of sub-genres metal had to offer, my score would be higher. Regardless, this is some impressive power metal. The production is great, overall, with the symphonic keys and the both, epic and speedy riffs. The vocals are over the top. It has everything you look for in a well balanced power/symphonic metal album.


Great vocals, epic solos, really technical fast playing that gives off an epic feeling that power metal should have. No other power metal record has impressed me as much as this one.
