Style: Power Metal
Release date: 25 March, 2011
Playing time: 58:13

Almost 3 years later (time flies) the follow up to 'Master of Illusion' is released. Steve Williams, the chief of the band is the only one left from that line-up. A whole new line-up, but the music style is still the same. The biggest and best change is that Chitral Somapala has been recruited as singer. Former Domain and Firewind vocalist Chitral does a good job and in my opinion a better one than former singer Alessio Garavello.

That, and the in my opinion better written songs, makes this album a good release. Melodic power metal with neoclassical influences and enough variety. Sometimes it sounds a little clean, but the nice guitar work and tight rhythm section finishes it off. This fifth release is one that will be liked by all melodic power metal fans. Steve Williams found good musicians to help him out and I hope for him the band will sticks together and get the chance to play the songs live throughout Europe. Job well done!
