Bit of a side note here. For those who are going to miss Juha's vocals in the future, he's got a new band called Chamber Of Unlight. They've currently got a demo out and it sounds promising.

The album per se is not all to bad, but the bloody trumpets sound misplaced and odd, the vocals are weird, idk, i just dont like it at all

Several month later i heard it again at a friends house, and so i gave it another chance and listened to it several times over the month, and really its not so bad at all, and even the bloddy trumpets sound kinda interesting altough out of place somehow, idk why but it reminds me of Cowboy Bebop....

So this might not be as good or impactuful as previous releases, but its afterall a good effort into experimentatiion and doing something different, and given a chance it might even be a quite good album - so give this a chance without prejudice.

I'm still sure that "Anti-Life Saviour" is a song leftover from the previous album, and its really fantastic (should be released as bonus to omega arcane)
