4 stars Hammers of Misfortune´s last offering is a progressive rock concept album with lots of Hammond keyboards, textures, ideas and intensity. One of the most interesting Prog Metal albums of the year.

The tragic decade of 1930s was called The Locust Years by Winston Churchill, with words from the Old Testament Book of Joel 2:25. The lyrics have clear references to the corruption and war-like environment the world is in, but they are opened to several interpretations.

How does it sound? Well: mix Emmerson, Lake & Palmer and Yngwie Malmsteen, put different voices with 70's feel, alternate lyrical moments with storms of energy, and you will have it.

An amazing CD, highly recommended.
