4 stars Having thoroughly enjoying the previous release by this obscure act, I found myself once again reunited with Gandalf's Fist by a chance when listening to the a covermount CD from 'Prog' magazine which featured 'The gathering of the clouds' from this release. I recently received the album from the Band's website I have to agree with some of the other reviewers here - there is definitely a harder edge to this record... there are a few meaty riffs and frantic drums in comparison to the previous mellowness of 2011's 'Road to Darkness'. However this is no bad thing - the title track despite being 30 minutes in length has enough twists and turns to keep you hooked and the aforementioned 'Gathering of the Clouds' is bombastic, moody and without a doubt the best 'Fist track to date... Floyd Psychedelia mixed with a 'Maiden Gallop...excellent! Other tracks were highly enjoyable -with 'there and back again' the only track i found myself skipping on the first listen... it will take time to digest the rest of the record, but I am more than happy to be revisiting this one again! I have a keen interest in watching this band develop - they're strange, and bewildering at times but their sound seems to be evolving into something interesting indeed...more please! 7.5/10
