I knew it would be hard to top Eternal, but thought this was a pretty solid album. Regardless of religious beliefs, one has to appreciate the excellent musicmanship WOA has. The harsh vocals of Leroy Hamp are surpassed only by the shredding of the duel guitar assault. Both of these factors are apparent all the way through. The only exception is the instrumental "M.E.B" which is just acoustic and simply beautiful. If I had to choose a favorite, I'd have to go with "Fallen Idol". It starts off with a nice riff and then opens with a group chant "We are the children of promise..." making it a very catchy song. Love the solo that's thrown down too toward the end.
This is sad, truly it is. I never thought this band of any would succumb to such minimalistic and boring trends. There are good guitar solos, and their powerful message remains unchanged, but the overall product is far from the standard set by WoA's previous releases.
