4 stars Another album that's not really a studio album, but more an EP like "A'arab Zaraq Lucid Dreaming". There is only one new song, the remaining tracks are two leftovers from the Vovin era, one re-recorded track, three covers and three live songs.

The title track is a short sight to what style would the band use on their next release "Deggial" - still very orchestral but a little heavier than "Vovin". "Mark Of Cain" is a very catchy song (one of the two that didn't make it on "Vovin"). "Clavicula Nox" is the re-recorded version of the "Vovin" song, but this time with more keyboards and male vocals - the result is simply amazing. "Crazy Nights" and "Thor" are Loudness and Manowar covers - again like on "A'arab Zaraq Lucid Dreaming" those covers are done for fun (pure fillers). "From The Dionysian Days" is a weird song (the other one that didn't make it on "Vovin" - for sure it didn't fit on that album). Then you have "Seawinds" - a cover of an old Accept song (a ballad) but done with female vocals - another great song. The last three songs are live songs, mostly fillers again.

Rating: 86/100
