Staff review by
Demonic Tutor
Ever since 2002's "Damage Done", the pioneers of the Gothenburg sound have mastered their newer sound with "Character" and now "Fiction" . In a way, their newest release can be considered as the twin album of "Character". The same formula was once again brought into daylight, resulting to a great album but with as many surprises as a Manowar album.

After first spin i thought it's pretty good album, between 8 and 9, but now after more than 10 spins... damn, what an grower. It was better and better with every next spin. Now, can't give it less than 10/10. A DT's best.
