This album is like time travel, because you slap it on and are suddenly back in 1997, listening to yet another Italian Power Metal band, except it's 2023 and that ship sailed a long time ago. Does this count as nostalgia now? Imitating third-rate bands like Skylark or Thy Majestie? I have to say they do it well, because nothing about this sounds like it was recorded recently, it sounds like something that came out around the same time as Symphony of Enchanted Lands, when there were 5000 Italian bands playing this style, and most of them were crap, but nobody much cared. There are some nice melodies on here, and the band has talent and sounds tight and pro, but nothing about this stands out except how their sound is so dated it almost qualifies as retro.
