Even after their third release this band stays quite unknown, though they recorded an intense tour de force through prog / doom / speed influenced power metal realms. Massive sound, ultra heavy guitars, well-placed double bass attacks, short intro parts, clear vocals and brilliant production characterize this album. In comparison with the first one the sound became tighter and more polished. The new singer fits in well, though Stefan Carlsson showed a slightly better performance.
After the opening title track leaves you breathless, the rhythm guitar of “Inhale” tears you apart. This one as highlight has a nice build-up intro part and an ultra mighty solo passage. The only minus for this album is a certain similarity of the songs. Each one very strong, but taken together they lack a bit of variation.
