5 stars Out of Africa...into my heart.

This could be the most exciting record of 2011, don't you think? The (almost perfect) blend of prog, metal and oriental music into a supersonic record blew my mind on the first listen. Yes, it's been a while since a metal prog album did that.

First things first: I've never heard something like that before. The Arabic singing both male and female, the great conga codas, the oriental melodies blended with (quite) heavy music is surprisingly original. Yes I use this word with parcimony. Originality scores big time with Tales of The Sand. We are submerged with the same old same old, and 2011 didn't skip it's turn. So rejoice people of the World, you'll have a great (underline great) time with this record, it's so entertaining you'll feel like dancing. I'm not joking, you actually can dance on Merciless Times!

If you like A.C.T and Muse's cross of short songs and catchy choruses with a punch around every corner, you have a winner. 100% growling-free, you'll be far away from the darkness and moodyness of regular metal. Myrath is not a 'despair' band, on the contrary!

When Myrath says dance you dance!
