5 stars Second album of the 2004 double-album Therion pair. It isn't just another part of double album ( on other CD) , but separate album with it's own music and atmosphere.

Starting from very beginning, the listener receive strong doze of real heavy/speed metal without any prog atributes. At a moment you start thinking that this album is targeted to heavy metal fans, Therion returned back to their usual music: dark sound ( remind me the music from old version of "Omen" movie) changes by chorals, middle-ages folk sounds, acoustic solos, bright melodism.

Every song is different in style on this short ( just 42+ min) album. Fireworks of sounds, styles, melodies plus heavy guitar sound almost everywhere.

Absolutely beautiful album, in a pair with "Sirius B" is Therion's best work till now.
