3 stars Three albums into their career and Blind Guardian are still slowly finding their own niche in the Power Metal genre. Although their music still retains the ultra-fast pickings of their Power Metal roots, the band have started to take their songwriting into more progressive directions. The use of acoustic guitars, more intricate vocal harmonies and Tolkien-inspired lyrical themes are all used effectively to help the band stand out from other bands of the genre.

Although some of the songs sound pretty filler, there are also some Blind Guardian classics here. Such as 'Lord of the Rings', 'Welcome to Dying', 'Lost in a Twilight Hall' and my personal favorite, 'Tommyknockers'.

Much like their previous albums, this is far from the perfect record, but any fan of the band will be missing out if they don't own it.

Valarius | 3/5 |
