Staff review by
So here the legend begins, with this first album signed on one of the most prestigious label (Limb at that time), the now well-known Italian band stroke the minds. We could argue on what is this music, is it power metal, symphonic, epic, or even Hollywood metal, what remains the same is that this album is great. I have to let you know before you read more of this review, that I consider this album the best release of the band, while many fans consider it's their weakest album. Let me explain why in details.

This is damn good. A perfect debut release.

Got it recently in Japanese release

One of the best listenings in my life indeed, though is not my favorite from them (that's From Chaos to Eternity)
