This album is actually magical. It has a good guitar tone, good vocals, good production, and sounds like it was made by a competent band, and manages to actually make nothing of note for 45 straight minutes. The second and third track are literally in the same key, back to back, and sound nearly identical. It’s astonishing. It’s like the rhythm guitar has a 20 inch cock, and the whole album is just a one long masturbation session. It isn’t even chugchore, it’s just nothing but pretty good singing and backup guitars for an entire album. Oh and there’s a weird emotional piano track that’s really bad, but that’s kinda par for the course in power metal so whatever.
