3 stars This is one of the best ever power metal albums. As simple as that.

The music is big, complex and heavy at the same time. It is the Iron Maiden formula. But Savatage has a different sound. A more heavy sound. They also have a lot of influences from the German metal scene. Accept pops up in the more heavy parts of this album. The main composition, the title track no less, is based on Edvard Grieg's piece of the same name from the Peer Gynt symphony. A massive and excellent piece of music which Savatage has translated well into power metal. Although their version is very different from Edvard Grieg's version. The name of the title track really says everything about this album. It is a heavy, massive piece of music throughout. It is one of only five power metal albums worth having. But it is not prog rock.

3.5 stars
