You will never have heard anything like this in your metal lives before, this is one of those special releases that comes along with something totally different and blows your head off. A cappella is something usually totally alien to listeners of metal, but here we have it - probably the first ever a cappella metal band like this. Yes, a band with five singers and one drummer, three of them singing through guitar amplifier stacks imitating guitars accompanied by thundering, typical power metal style drumming that still provides a very metal experience.

Boring. My rating would be lower if it weren't the originality of their voices.

Interesting stuff. What makes this album better than most of power metal out there, is the fact, that when you leave guitars and keys out, the music won't be so overmelodic as majority of PM is. The only thing that bothers here is the drumming which is too often regular PM double bass stuff.
The guitar is my sword, I'll fight 'til I die /../
