It's rare for me to like a melodeath album and even rarer to like it so much that it forces me to write a review about it. Prokopton is not just likeable; it's delicious.

Absolutely a solid album. Other than a little bit homologous in songwriting, Prokopton is so far the best album I've heard this year. I have a feeling that they can do better in the future, as they already EVOLVED since the last recording. Keep up!!!

The band improved the overall quality of the last album with better production and the music sounds more refined, with some good rifs, nice songwriting and the great voice from the lead female singer - awesome!

I suppose you mean "unvaried" ?

Enjoyable, if a tad monotonous. The artwork and production are both standouts from this release!

First song starts off Be'lakor, then early Ensiferum, then Equillibrium. Appreciated, but not sure what I think exactly yet.

I need to give it a few more spins, but it sounds like AOTY right now.

It's like one melody played in different keys and tempos. 'Bloodline' isn't bad though.

I find the keyboards far too over powering. I've given it a fair few spins but it's just not for me.

This is more like a symphonic metal and not proper melodeath. I was wondering how they got such a high rating here even being a melodeath and now I know the reason. Few songs are power metal also.

I can't understand how this album is out of the top 20.
I understand that my music knowledge is way too low, but I am not asking it to be no.1, just inside the top 20.

I'll contact the local authorities and see to it that this grave injustice is remedied immediately.

Easily one of my favorite melodic death albums this year, even if it's a little monotonous at times.

Reminds me a lot of Skyfire, Ensiferum, early Norther, etc.

If this would have been something I heard for the first time back when I was first exploring the vast expanses of the metal world, it would probably hold some nostalgic place in my heart. But without that specific context, this just comes across as yet another one of those frantic keyboard-abusing extreme power metal albums, which is one of my least favorite sub-genres of metal. Highly recommended for fans of this style though, as it sounds on par with the most renowned releases in its grouping.
