This is actually pretty alright. I like that there are enough heavy parts to make up for the flowery parts. The flowery parts could be a little better written in terms of being more catchy and stuff, I felt.

Not much to complain about regarding performance, it seems quite alright although I'm not particularly fond of the genre. I like the production too, I think the drums are mixed well.

Nice work overall, start pushing it out towards Candlelight or something! :P

It wasn't bad. I thought the vocals were the weakest part of the album, musically it was pretty damn good, though, and the keyboards and flowery parts were pretty cool imo. I like the beginning of the second part as it was almost black metal-like.

Thanks for the opinion, in order to improve, what does the vocals lack ? I used some cheap dynamic mic and I was really loud when recording them.
I am really glad that you guys liked keyboard work and writing.

Well to me the vocals sounded kind of weak (as in lacking power) and pretty amateur-ish for a full-length album as well as being a bit generic sounding. Compared to the other instruments and the actual music & songwriting, it was definitely the weakest link imho.
It's kind of like Weapon. The music is awesome, and there isn't really anything that you can pick out that's specifically bad about their music, but, compared to everything else, if there's a detriment or a weakness, it would be the vocals.

Thanks, I'll work on improving my vocals, I was kinda surprised with that, but I'd take it into consideration, maybe work on making them more low and more high instead of sticking in the mid range.

It has more to do with delivery than variation. When you write lyrics, keep in mind how well they sit the vocal line in terms of diction and syllables, those are more important than they seem.
