MoS is a versatile artist able to combine clever lyrics with the right type of music to create the right atmosphere. I wasn't sure whether an album completely dedicated to 1 genre would show off his talent as much. But he delivers & how! The entire album is definetely metal, but every song is different. Both music & lyrics show a range from more hardcore to celtic to melodic & even some pirate metal. I'm not a "hardcore" metal fan, but even I have most of this album on repeat!
