This is the debut for Greek band Wishdoom, who despite the name are not really a Doom band at all. This is heavy, epic-styled metal in the definite vein of bands like Holy Martyr and Sacred Blood - other Greek bands who write muscular songs about the history and myth of the Hellenic Age.

Some people seem to be knocking this band because they are not a Doom band, but that's just ridiculous. This is big, brawny epic metal with heavy riffs, pounding drums, drawn-out arrangements, and decent clean vocals. There may not be anything revolutionary about this, and it is not an album for the ages, but this is a strong debut that speaks well for the band's future. If you love Battleroar, Wotan, Sacred Blood, Arryan Path and other such bands, then add this one to your shelf.
