The second album of danish band Royal Hunt is a good example how must sounds prog metal combined with symphonic elements the resoult is Clown in the mirror. The sound, manner of interpretation and composing of this album is not far from the next releases Moving target and Paradox, but less good then the albums mentioned before. On this album features on voice Henrik Brockmann, wich is an unknown voice to me till i descoverd this album, he sounds ok, even in places very good like on Wasted time and Epilogue, but he is not even close to DC Cooper who has a much powerful voice. The pieces are well composed and sounds solid, prog metal with a lot of symphonic elements, because of André Anderson keyboard orentation, anyway one of the best keyboard players from prog metal, no doubt. The best pieces are Wasted time, Epilog and instrumental one Third Stage. A good album and enjoyble most of the time, but Clown in the mirror don't reaches the beauty and perfection of the next 2 releases Moving target and the masterpiece of prog metal Paradox.
