After the absolutely amazing Iron Will, I was very interested in hearing how Grand Magus would follow up. That album was my Album of the Year in 2008. This one did not make my list last year because I only just recently got it. But, after hearing it, it would have easily made my Top 10 once again.
This album picks up right where Grand Magus left off, with some absolutely amazing epic traditional metal. The band has a gift for writing infectious songs with great riffs and terrific melodies. This gift is shown in full force on this album. All of the individual musicians sound great on this release, and of course the vocals of J.B. remain a strength.
There really is not much to say about this release. It's absolutely amazing. A great album. Grand Magus remains a hugely underrated band.
