I was blown away, and any other direction in trillion pieces by listening to 'Panta Rhei'. I discovered this band a month ago. Best ad ever that ever popped up to me!

Another 7 song album. It will complete the last one to make it one full album of normal length.

Wat?
For real though, there is an art to actually editing yourself as to release an album without bloat and one that makes you want to spin it again after it's over. Wouldn't you agree?😀

The longer the better. And I still have not had enough of the last album. So combining them into a 75-80 minute "album" sounds good to me,

Great album, the clean classical vocals were a welcome addition.

“Le Radeau De La Méduse” is the best melodeath song (to my taste) I've heard in a while. Both versions are great, as the French vocals on the French version are surprisingly good. Overall, the vocals are a huge step up from the last album. The growls are better mixed, the cleans are very good and a nice touch, and it's their first albums I don't prefer the instrumental version.
A few songs are a bit less inspired but still good, especially on the first half. Fortunately the album is picking up on the second part which is excellent.

Land Of Hope -
Antigone - 8
Of Volition - 7
Le Radeau De La Méduse - 10
Roots And Leaves - 7
Vague À L'Âme -
Strider - 9
Panta Rhei - 9
A Dream Of Wilderness - 8
Old French Song - 9
Le Radeau De La Méduse [FR] - 10

Overall 8.5, rounded up to 9 for “Le Radeau De La Méduse”

I think it's 7 if you don't count the intros and the bonuses (and the instrumentals). I think at the very least, the 2 bonuses should be counted, so it's more a 9 tracks album.

It is such a bad feeling when music is quite well, but thorough out the whole record there are such terrible vocals like here

I don't care about instrumentals or non-original pieces / versions / whatever
