Fast and bombastic power metal with the emphasis on keyboards. This is the first album of Fairyland where guest performers are used with the keyboard player being the sole remaining member.
This is, in my opinion a step in the right direction. It gets better with every new album. Just listen to the catchy ''Assault On The Shores'' to get a taste of the album.
The contribution of Serenity's vocalist is a welcomed addition. One of the few critiques you can give it is the lack of originality. It tends to sound a bit like what you can expect from Blind Guardian / Rhapsody, but this is less noticeable than in the previous record, so this can be somewhat overlooked
In the end it doesn't always have to be very original, especially not within the power metal realm. As long as the music is well executed, I am happy, and that's exactly what this album makes you.
It's about as great as fantasy metal can get, for me at least.
