4 stars I hope this band will last!

Don't you like when a no-name-out-of-the-blue band steals the show? This is the case here. Galahad pulls out the big guns (a la Pepper's Ghost) to impress the gallery and they'll get new fans with this album.

The intro has to be heard: starts with a nice female chant, changing into a scary revolution riot from the streets of Pekin to a full Threshold / Pallas / Arena song with a darn good chorus. Whoo!

The rest is still going in the same polically-engaged-anti-Bush lyrics, with nice melodies and always that ragged and edgy new néo progressvie attitude. Listen to Termination, I could be God or Empires never last and you'll be surprised by their crunchy sound and crisp production. This sounds big and loud!

Again, think of a mix of Threshod (approach of metal and rock), Pallas (vocals) and Arena (song structure). A good blend of this and that, and on top a nice and very catchy instrumental song; sing along!

A huge surprise and total run of your money, a good purchase and a round of applause for the superb package.

A nice prospect for album of 2007.
