A fantastic album I discovered a month or two ago that totally blew me away and one I can't stop listening to lately. Pick your favorite track off of it.

I agree, that album's fantastic. I also ran it non-stop after a friend recommendated it to me. I will go for the opening track And The Mirror Cracked .

have to go with the opening track as well, though the outro of the last track is probably the best part of the album

Man this album rules. It was such a nice surprise, about a year ago now, when I discovered it. I went with the title track. That violin intro is just so beautiful and I like that melody a lot, everywhere it appears on the track. I have a difficult time finding fault in any of this album, though, so I could choose any of the tracks really.

Industrial metal's really not my thing.

they're not really industrial at all...then again I haven't heard Gloria but my understanding is that the two albums are night and day compared to each other

I'd have to go with A Day By The Lake...though I like them all.

Every song on this album is gold, but I'll have to go with the title track.

I discovered this album about 1 year ago, along with "Fredrik Thordendal's Special Defects" and "The Machinations of Dementia". That was a flawless purchase I think Wink

I'm amazed nobody has chosen "The Sleep of Restless Hours", 17 minutes of pure excitement!!!

How did I miss this poll exactly?

And The Mirror Cracked for me. Those guitar harmonies make the entire album worth buying. Thanks for creating this poll

^It's got one of the most headbang-worthy intros/riffs I've ever heard, too.

I went for the closing track. This is definately an amazing album. Any fans of that superfast blastbeat thing going on at 6:30min into the title track? Wink

By the way, the biography of the band is seriously outdated. It's still from before Gloria was released.
Somebody should update it. (My writing skills are too poor and I don't seem to have the rights ^_^)
