Rated 3.72/5 (74.44%) (18 Votes)

I rather liked last year's album by this band, The Shadow Over Atlantis, but this is a re-release of their debut from 3 years ago. I have to say I find this less occult and esoteric than their last album, plus the vocals are a lot weaker and sort of post-metallish. This is pretty much just slow, with not enough to really grab my attention. Okay for background music, but not much else.
