4 stars Continuing right where the second part ended, and coming a year after it in 2008 the third part of Dominici's grand tale of the big terrorist plan and the lone cop pursuing it does not disappoint.

The band is the same as previously and so is the quality of music. If something, I feel that the energy levels have been increased and the emphasis has shifted a bit more to the metallic side of things. That's not a big change as the music is as enjoyable as in the previous installment. This time I can hear elements of power metal too, and while I usually don't like power metal at all, I don't mind the influences here as they are only minor. You can notice the change in Dominici's voice as well, he seems to sing a bit more aggressively here and with a bit of a growl in his voice in some parts. It's all good.

If anything, the story grows out of all proportions, and without revealing too much, handles the destruction of mankind. Sounds ridicilous enough, but for some weird reason it works for me. Some parts of the lyrics are weaker than before, with phrases like "their eyes were black, a soul they lack, I can't go back" being quite bad. That's a very minor flaw as the main story develops quite naturally.

The production seems to reflect the change in music as it's more powerful and all the instruments can be heard quite clearly while the focus is on drums and guitar. Especially the drums thunder and pound like there's no tomorrow.

A great ending to a trilogy which is outrageously weird in its concept. 4 stars.
