2 stars Although this album has it's faults you know the talent is here, and it will blossom fully on their "Arkana" record. They are kind of finding their way on this their first record it would seem.

"Antiquum" is a tough opener considering it's this gothic sounding male choir singing throughout. Not a good start really. "Warriors Of The Ideal" reminds me of MARILLION, a combination of the keyboards and vocals I suppose. An uptempo track that's pretty good. "Last Flight Of The Silver Drakkar" opens with a little bombast as pulsating organ follows. I like the deep bass lines as vocals come in.

"Mysterion-Sophia" opens with keys and synths as spoken words come in.This is dark and slow moving until after 5 minutes when the tempo picks up. By then it's too late. I like the guitar later though. Not really a fan of this one. "Alone, With My Spiritual Induction" opens with a pulsating beat as the guitar grinds away. Piano takes over for the rest of the song. "Laud (To The God Of High Places)" features acoustic guitar melodies throughout. Flute joins in. "New Myths" is mellow with flute, acoustic guitar and reserved vocals. "...Voices" is good with the raw guitar and heavy bass. Vocals are more passionate too.

The only reason I would recommend this to fans of ASGARD, would be to check out their beginnings.
