4 stars This is no doubt my favorite Power Metal album with the best Power Metal band in the world producing it! (Blind Guardian). This album is where all the magic of earlier such albums as Somewhere Far Beyond and Imaginations From the Other Side comes together! The brilliance of Olbrich's and Siepen's songwriting mixed in with Hansi Kursch's brilliant multi-layered vocals creates a brilliant sound that is epic in proportion. In Many words, there is not a better written Power Metal album than this Metal masterpiece and as the Gods of Power Metal have produced yet another great album! But this one has surpassed what Imaginations and Somewhere have done. In all words, there is not a single weak moment on this album, but many highlights and a story that is all well dedicated to JRR Tolkein in traditional Power Metal sense.

A great album for any serious music collection!

Recommended for All Metal fans and fans of Prog in general!

4.5/5 really!

King of Loss | 4/5 |
