I am glad to say that Lefay's S.O.S. doesn't contain most of the little things that annoyed me on last year's The Seventh Seal.   I find it quite enjoyable to listen to, and the lyrics are not as repetitive than on last year's offering, rather they are actually quite interesting, very well thought out.  The album again has an overall dark feel to it, dealing mostly with end-of-the-world type of stories - not surprising considering the title (S.O.S. - Save Our Souls) and the characters wearing gas masks on the cover and inside the booklet.  Some of the songs are slow and heavy, with a depressing mood to them.  There are also some faster songs, resulting in a pretty well-balanced album.

I still have a bit of a hard time with the vocals, although I think they are better than on The Seventh Seal.  The musicianship is what you'd expect from an experienced band, no negative comments there!  Overall, a great heavy/power metal album that you won't regret adding to your collection.
