Generetic rock stuff, not really symphonic, since the orchestra is not part of the music itself. It just plays in the background, not because it's needed to underline the emotions, but only to make it more epic. Sharon has a good voice. Good, but not more than that. There are some good tracks on here, but all in all, it's just nothing special in mainstream rock.
A suprisingly excellent album.The band has improved very much from The Silent Force.The symphonies are lowered, everything sounds much better, with Sharon's superb performance on all songs. There is no bad song on this one, I recommend you The Howling , The Cross, Hand of Sorrow, Our Solemn Hour.
