From, the ultimate progressive rock music website

1 stars not much to write about it, since we're talking about the debut of a promising US power metal band... and this is something that limits my review for two reasons... A. this is a prog site and there aren't any prog elements in it... B. it would worth a bigger review if it was released a decade before... and that is because it has all the characteristics a US power metal band would have in the mid 80's...

it reminded me of Queensryche of "The Warning" period and Fates Warning of "Awaken The Guardian" period... which is Maiden-like metal with high pitched vocals and heavy guitars... only that the vocals are lame (i wouldn't even dare to compare the guy with Tate or Arch...) and the songs are dull, uninspired, typical.. some may find them romantic and nostalgic, stuck in the 80's metal but that's not what we're looking for.. and even if i were to rate it in some metal site, i'd still say it's poor...

the only songs that are of some quality are "Call Of The Sea", a mid tempo 'Tage-like song that Kamelot still perform live and that tells us something about the song and "Fire Within"... from the rest, "Proud Nomad" is like a Maiden cover and "Red Sands" reminded me a lot of Crimson Glory... the rest follow and seem like mere fillers to me...oh, there's a ballad too, in it that wouldn't even make it in any of those lame "Metal Ballads" compilation that are released every summer... in conclusion, an indifferent release for the average PA visitor, unless this is the only album you are missing to complete your ultimate metal collection...
