01. Temple Of Tears
A nice introducing to the new album with it's "In Flames" like aggressive rhythm verse and it's experimental voices. The melodic chorus is supported by the choirs, the solo part is typical power metal . The lyrics are inspired by the movie "Bringing Out The dead" with Nicolas Cage
02. A Taste Of Armageddon
One of my favourites of the album. Thrash rhythm on the verse, powerful chorus, soft middle part with Floor Jansen, twin guitars and heavy solo.
03. Messenger Of Faith
One of the most power metal song … very efficient on stage !!!!
04. Secret Rules
The song is about the origin of the mafia in Sicilia. The Sicilian narrator in the intro is done by Jo and David 's father …Very efficient on stage too! Also one of my favourites, I really love the 2 verses
05. The Dressmaker
The darkest song of the album! Noisy keyboards, the lyrics are very dark and scary too!! I'm very happy with the middle part of the song before the solo.
06. Endless Agony
Classic speed power metal song, very powerful song, I like the guitars on the ending.
07. Paranormal Magnitude Part II
Semi instrumental song with just the choirs.
08. Circle Of The Dark
Intro riff wrote by Nicko ! A really heavy song!
09. Haunting Memories
The ballad of the album with a 70's verse.
My favourite song!! One of the heavier song Nightmare ever wrote !
11. The Dominion Gate
Epic song with a lot of changes and atmospheres !! Floor sings a duet with Jo
12. The Watchtower
My 2nd favourite song !! the verse is a duet between Jo and Sander from After Forever, really heavy song !!
A song about the Russian submarine Koursk and how politicians are carrying of human's life.
