5 stars Epic, powerful, aggressive, Back to Times of Splendor.

From the first seconds of the first track you get a clear view what you are about to experience, the aggressive start just nails you down. But within the wall of sound there are great melodies and skillful playing with very much going on at the backround. Halfway through the track the second strong point of the album becomes obvious, as the beautiful and more calmer melodies start. A mix between extremes, and it works perfectly.

Every single song is great. The 2 long, epic songs are probably the key points but the rest do not pale in comparison. The lead singer, Vurtox, is impressive through the whole 56 minutes of this record, as he switches between growls and clean voceals. And the lyrics are complex and tell thoughtful stories. Back to Times of Splendor earned a place in my top 5 albums of all time.

And thanks to progarchives I found this gem. 5 stars.
