Staff review by

Ah, the new Wizard release. I've been waiting for this one for quite a while, so a few days after it was released I went to the city to my favourite CD shop and bought it, hoping for the same splendour as on the two previous albums Odin and Magic Circle. Did they do it again? Hell yes they did!

After a calm intro which introduces the setting of the concept story to us, the album begins with a killer track. Honestly, which heavy/power metal fan will be able to not sing along to this pure catchiness? "She is the witch of the enchanted forest!". Oh yes she is, but I doubt the forest is the only one who's enchanted, I am too. This whole album continues in the same great way. Awesome riffs, variated midtempo/fast drumming, amazing vocals, a few very melodic breaks, a few straightforward fast-hitting sections and a lot of catchy texts and epic atmospheres. Basically I can say that this CD has everything a heavy metal fan could want, apart maybe from an 'oldschool' feeling, but then again I personally don't really mind that loss.

Rating: 5 2nd weak album a row. Seems like the band is losing it's heaviness, partly due to the production but also the band sounds somehow less metal than before. Songs are average, cannot find any really good tracks like they used to have on the past albums. I kinda have feeling that Wizard is doing the same as Manowar did; selling out, doing this soft metal close to euro power stuff and calling it true. Well, they may fool others and they may fool themselves but they cannot fool me: this is far from true metal, this is rather wimp metal.
