Brilliant slab of melodic power metal that avoids the frills and gloss of its contemporaries. The song structures are epic and perfectly paced, the guitar solos are excellent, and Tom Davy's voice is a mature driving force that never slips into the gargling sounds of bands like Lonewolf, Ironsword, and modern Grave Digger. No symphonies. No nonsense. This is easily one of the best true power metal albums of this decade.
