Staff review by
When proclaiming that a once all-conquering band is back on form, there are degrees to which a band can return to form. Is this the next The Black Halo or Ghost Opera? No. Is it the best thing that Kamelot have done since then? I reckon so.

I was very sceptic after hearing the songs released before the album, sounded very tiresome. Now as a I listen to the whole thing I actually think it's a alright record. It's a lot better than The Shadow Theory and I also think I enjoy it more than Silverthorn. The stand out tracks are Midsummer’s Eve and Bloodmoon.
And what do you call assassins who accuse assassins anyway, my friend?

Well guys, I gave it some 3-4 spins, but honestly I cant stand the sound of hi-hat. or the sound of some synth-lines, I dont know really. I use to listen to music by headphones and there is something very disturbing here. definitely horrible production. maybe compression? I am no audiophile but I know something is too wrong here... when I return to their back catalogue, I cant hear anything similar there. does anyone else hear the same as I do?
