2 stars Back in 1988 Guardians were far from being original. Helloween rip-offs here and there plus typical speed metal patterns. That's what this album is. Not a bad one for sure, still below their later shown skills. Majesty is the finest track on the record, some tunes like Wizard's Crown and Run for the Light expose na´vetÚ to the point you feel like it's almost amateurish, however it's really nothing if you compare it to the title track's lyrics. Even as for the debut album it's nothing very interesting cos as I say, it's really far from being original. Anyway, for fans only just to see what happens. And it will a lot.
