01. New World Messiah:

- Fast and cachy. Melodic intro riff which turns into a soft part and Jonny sings with a softer voice. The everything starts double bass drums bla bla... typical power metal with alot of guitar parts in the middle of the song.

02. Against the World:

- One of my favourite songs on this album. It´s a slower song with a cool melodic riff. Very heavy verse and a majestic chorus. Very "easy" song to listen to. Our second video song.

03. Avalon:

- This is a fast song again. The chorus is from a song that was a "leftover" from the "Shadowland" cd. A really good chorus in my opinion. The middle part is a more "jamming" part and Norberg plays some cool solos. Our third video song.

04. Awakening:

- Mid tempo song and alot of peoples favourite song i think Starting with a cool thrash based riff. Big chorus and once again alot of melidies in the middle. Our first video song.

05. Egyptica:

- I guess the title speaks for itself. A really heavy song. This song is standing on it own feets on this record. Really cool one.

06. Break Away:

- A really cool beginning of the song. A riff played on the 7th string. Once again...melodic chorus... guitar melodies...

07. End of Days:

- A sort of fast/slow song, fast chorus and a slower verse.

08. The Flame Will Never Die:

- A heavy song and very easy to attract. A soft verse and everything comes on the chorus.

09. One Nation:

- Melodic intro...mid tempo with some evil heavy shit in the middle. Catchy chorus...Metal...

10. Nightmare:

- Mid tempo triplet song Once again a big cool chorus. Heavy riffs meets melody. Good song.. just like all the songs on this album. Right, Mikael?;)
