Really nice balance between being melodic, and rhythmically moving. A lot of power metal albums seem to just focus so much on one or the other, instead of doing both well. You’ll either have something like Galneryus (though I wouldn’t say that’s really a bad thing) or you’ll have some random chug prog band that gets praised because they use folk instruments one time on the album. This has a nice mix of both. You can hear the influences of when this band used to be a black metal band on tracks like The Mentor. The type of riffs they use sound a bit like slowed down black-thrash riffs in a way. This is nothing absolutely amazing, but still very decent power metal without a single bad track on the album, if nothing really spectacular.
