I was expecting this release.

I didn't really really liked it... I'm feeling a bit let down by my favorite artist recently.

The thing that I despise the most is the copycat formulaic repetitive ...

I got a Nightwish vibe, again, at the beginning of the song. Thankfully not nearly as blatant as Antemortem. Good song for a single, I enjoyed it. I hope there's some meatier power metal type stuff on ...

I think the Matias era albums sound great...

One thing I do miss about the late 90s production is however Timo mixed the drums - I think he also used some VST samples on top of Jorg's playing, for ...
