Really good album. While there are songs I don't like on their previous release, here they are back on the right track. Amazing songs, zero fillers, everything sounds great. Obviously Deep Purple had a great influence on this album, something making it even more majestic.

The first part of the album is great, but it loses the initial "force" as time passes by. Good album for sure.

The most diverse and interesting Avatarium album so far. While most of the tracks were still written by Leif Edling, Road To Jerusalem and When Breath Turns To Air (composed by Jennie-Ann Smith and Marcus Jidell) aren't any worse and show another side of the band.

I´ve been following these guys since the first EP but I was quite not excited for this one, IDK, the few singles didn't catch me. Now, if you say it got a Deep Purple influence that´s different. Shut up and take my money.

The Deep Purple influence is definitely there but it appears the younger generation is generally unaware of this *
