2 stars It's always never a good idea to discover a band and listen to their albums in reverse order, ending with their debutalbum.

This debutalbum is much better if I heard in 1998 then listening to it now; especially the production and the aimlessness of the songs makes this album hard to listen through.

They sound hungry and ready to go, but the band doesn't have the skills yet to write coherent songs, nor money to pay for a good studio/producer.

They sound like a crossover of (early) Iced Earth and Danzig, wich is not a bad thing, but I like Evergrey better when they evolve into what they now are. That's also good news, because a band that only has a good debut and becomes worse over time is not exactly what a band wants.

In short: I wish I was there in 1998 to hear this album, but right now in 2018 I'd rather listen to their new albums.
