5 stars Ive always wanted this but never knew it existed! untill now! Being a huge fan of both classical and metal, untill now ive been making do with "Symphony X" and "Rhapsody" who are both great bands, but this takes things just so very, very much further! The night i got the double pack of "Lemuria" and "Sirius B", I must have listened to both albums at least three times each, alternating between the two throught the whole night because i couldn't sleep! The PERFECT blend of heavy metal and symphonic opera! Its like Tchaikovsky, Opeth, Wagner, Amorphis, Orff, Amon Amarth, Beethoven and Rammstein all seamlessly blended into one! I guess the closest thing i can compare this to is Orff's "O Fortuna" (famous from the film "Excalibur") or a heavier version Beethovens 9th symphony "Ode to Joy". Its classical genious gone heavy! Truely epic songwriting for the ages. Massive on Biblical proportions! Contrary to Progfrog's previous review, i believe even the death metal vocals on tracks 1 & 3 are great and tastefull! The music quality is consistently high throughout both albums in the double pack, though the style is varied enouth to never get boring! I agree with what 'semismart' said in his review, especially about the last track sounding like Rammstein! LOL!

Hint: Get the double pack! They are both great!
