4 stars It is not surprising, given the title, that this is the fourth album by Kamelot. They have used a guest keyboard player, along with choirs and string sections, and these have all added depth to what is a stunning melodic metal album. There are parts of it, such as the introduction to "Desert Reign", which give no hint of the power and force of the music as it is not what one would expect to find on a rock album.

But, songs such as the title track show Kamelot in their true colours, flying high on a wind of anthemic intricate melodic metal with Casey Grillo pounding those double bass drum pedals for all he is worth. The fact that they have attempted to make their music much more than just another metal album is definitely in their favour, and Noise have also done their part with some evocative artwork for the booklet. If you are intrigued by bands such as Stratovarius then this is an album you must discover (distributed in the UK by Koch International).
