Wherever this international sextet have been staying, one thing is certain: it isn't in the realm of clarity.

So another band go for big label and put a more mainstreamy album.
You just cant do that with atmospheric black.
Sounds too clean for me and with that overproduction just sounds wrong.
Shame because the album before this one was epic.

I was REALLY excited from their promo song The Deluge, as it was easily in my favourites from them. However, i feel the rest of the album doesn't quite stack up to it sadly. It's fairly decent, but it certainly doesn't really grab my attention strongly.

Good decent album balance between male and female vocals, boat are in eual level eaual % singing time what makes it good, but somehow it seems can go a bit to ambient Summoning direction later, some songs were a bit soft ... otherwise good piece

I really liked their 2 previous albums but this new one is way too cheesy for my taste and when it's not cheesy it's just generic. Overall pretty disappointing.

The Shadowed Road was a really good album. While I expected growth between there and here, this completely blows me away. "The Deluge" may be the best song of the year. It just soars, and soars, and soars ever higher. "Talas" is a really strong, if not especially metal, song. That being said, many of the best metal bands blur lines between genres so the song still fits, even if its not the adrenaline filled rampage the average teen metal head wants. The rest of the album is just very insightful and creative. "The Event Horizon" is another great song. It feels a bit like a requiem at times, and just carries through quite strongly. The album would be highly recommended for fans of Saor, Eluveitie, Panopticon, and the ilk.

TL;DR, young, angry metal heads probably won't like the album (I wouldn't at that age), but older listeners will surely enjoy the album for years to come.

Well said about this album. Cannot tell this is a bad album buy neither good also in terms of creativity. They took the path of Nightwish to soft and smooth songs which you could keep as a background music anytime. All songs with same tempo and same feel. Real disappointment from last outing.

In the beginning I was made of clay. Then I bit the apple and they changed me to metal 🤘
