It’s always a pleasure to check out some new music from this epic Serbian power metal band. Their attention to detail, production standards and incredible songwriting are without peer. They really belong standing toe to toe with the best that Europe has to offer. From the beginning notes of the album all the way to the end, they truly have an ear for writing some compelling music. With artwork from the great Dusan Markovic once more, the entire package is one of professionalism. Then there is the vocal work by Dejana Garcevic, who in my mind is quite simply fantastic. She has great vocal range and control and can really change her approach from one song to another. Male vocals are done by newcomer Miodrag Fodora and they are deep and rich and a fitting contrast to Dejana’s beautiful sounds. Now his vocals are done in a clean style so this isn’t the tiring “beauty and the beast” vocals with the growls or anything, just a deep masculine counterpoint. Likewise Vladimir Garcevic and Goran Garcevic do quite an excellent job on the guitar and bass respectively, bringing forth a really epic feel with their playing. This is one of those releases that you are going to be drawn back to time after time and each time you will catch something you missed the last go around, making it a different experience with each listen! I can’t recommend this enough to any of the legion of European power metal fans out there!
