4 stars I was sure that after DC Cooper has left the band, Royal Hunt will not be the same anymore. His voice became a trademark of the band and I could not imagine another voice with Royal Hunt. But I had to and so I was pretty anxious what the new album will be like. I knew John West from his days with Artension and there was no doubt that he is a good vocalist, and therefore the new album cannot be a disappointment. And indeed it was not. I knew it as I heard the opening bass-drum duo in the first track "Fear"..and then the guitar joining..keyboard ..and vocals. It still is my favourite track from this album. The music has not changed compared to the previous records: it is the same well-composed and skillfully performed melodic metal with the unmistakable keyboard of Andre Andersen. John West rose to the occasion and delivered a great vocal performance. It is a very good album, but I still regret DC parting ways with the band.
