I bought this when I was at my favorite store. It was on the sales rack. When I listened to it on the way home I thought it was great. Very hard rocking. I really love the very dark but beautiful melodies and mythic lyrics. Toally wicked!. Buy this CD! You will think it rocks! This band combies the sounds of Blind Gaurdian and Iced Earth so it has alot of metal and fantasy inspired lyrics. This band is very, very interesting and different. I wish channels like MTV and Muchmusic played bands like this. This band has 70s and 80s metal infulence so it would be great to have those tv staitons play something new but with an old sound.
1 Rites of Passage: One of the best intros ever! It dosen't have any words just some sort of chanting. Very cool.
2 Heaven Denies: A fast, loud song. I think this song is pretty cool and well done but there are better songs on the album.
3 Poor Man's Crusade: Another fast song with violent lyrics but a good tune. Sweet song but the next song is better.
4 Fiddler on the Green: One of the best songs on the album. A beautiful rock ballet about two childern dying, it is amazing, deep and a very good rock song.
5 Blood on My Hands: Another one of the best songs. Its very catching and has very mystical lyrics.
6 Path of Glory: Again one of the best songs. Its very up lifting and hard. Good for bad days.
7 Winter of Souls: This ones ok but not their best. Its got good lyrics but there is room for improvment.
8 The Whister: Very catchy and well writen but chours seems to repeat itself alot. The lyrics are cool but desturbing.Read more ›
Fans of the disc get annoyed when people simply describe the CD's music as "Iced Earth metal w/ Blind Guardian vocals." Still, this statement is more true then false. The guitars (dirty and thrashy), production (somewhat raw and electrifying), themes (religion, questioning, etc), and metal attitude are VERY Iced Earth sounding, and the vocals seems to be very Blind Guardian inspired (Choir style screams, soprano's and depthful passion). I would say though the Cd is more Iced Earth then Blind Guardian, it almost seems like this is really Jon Shaffer's idea and Hansi is just along for the ride. Guitars are structured the same as Iced Earth as well, not many lead oriented riffs, but just power chord thrashness. No symphonies or fancy production effects, or even keyboards or pianos for that matter - so if you're into epic stuff like Rhapsody/Kamelot/Sonata Arctica type power metal, this might not be your thing.
We open up w/ a quite mediocre song that opens w/ the thrash metal and vocals i described earlier, and a chorus that struggles to be good, but ultimately isn't anything worth headbanging to, or even tapping your fingers to.Read more ›
