5 stars This album can be divided into two parts. In the first one from "Deus le Volt!" to "Temple of Hate", you will find First class power/heavy metal with the remarkable excellent musicianship, the drum sounds a lot like Portnoy's and the guitars are amazing with the great solos of Kiko Loureiro. The second part is the part the majority of the people on the Progarchives will find interesting. from "The Shadow Hunter" to "Gate XIII" you will find a masterpiece of progressive metal like no other. Take brazilian and european music elements, the participation of great vocalists as Hansi Kursh from Blind Guardian, Sabine Edelsbacher from Edenbridge and the brazilian legendary singer Milton Nascimento, mixture with excelent arrangements, a lot of feeling and emotion. The result is just amazing. Too ahead from the former works of the band, i got shivers since the fist time that i listened to it 'till now, 2 years after. The album tells the story of a cruzader knight in the XI century who faces his deepest beliefs and the antagonism of the war. A magic work of Rafael Bittencourt the guitarrist who wrote all lyrics and the concept of the album.

Definitely a Progressive Metal masterpiece and one of the best albuns i ever heard in my life. 10/10
