5th studio album from Melodic Metal band NARNIA from Sweden. I must admit that I was a little disappointed with this release at first, but of course I gave it another listen and now I like it a lot. The music is Melodic Metal in its purest form and this album is filled with great riffs and very memorable choruses… but give this album the time it needs to blossom.

Packed into a good production NARNIA has presented us with nine compositions, which absolutely are located in the very first division of Melodic Metal. Everything here is premier stuff, which is elevated even more by the great guitar-work of Carl Johan Grimmark and the brilliant voice of Christian Rivel.

I could write a very long and very boring review and telling you about every single song, but I won’t. No more words needed. So all you Melodic Metal-connoisseurs out there, this is one for you!
