is the second release from Martiria the first one was called “The
Eternal Soul” and it was released in 2004. “The Age of the
Return” is without a doubt the best epic metal album since
Warlords “And the Cannons of Destruction Have Begun”, and just
as impressive is the fact that the lead singer from Martiria is none
other than Rick Anderson aka Damien King III, former lead singer in
Age of the Return” is a perfect album, but of course some songs
stands out like “Misunderstandings”, “Exodus” & “Hell
is not Burning”, but above them all stands the excellent “The
Cross” an almost nine minutes epic journey with great choirs,
great vocals - Yeah you name it everything
is fucking awesome.
lyrics on “The Age of the Return” are based on the bible, and it
fits the music perfectly. A special credit must go out to Andy
Menario, the man who wrote and produced this masterpiece.
CD comes in a digipack with a great artwork.
if you are into epic metal and have missed the likes of Warlord
& Lordian Guard, there is only one thing to do BUY.
Recommended tracks: ALL.
