Nightwish without fairy dust. Hard, epic rock with strong yet soft female vocals. Slower and faster songs have their place in this 16 track album. Both rhythm and melody excel in all of the songs. It was harder than usual to select only two songs to present here.
The Descent sounds like a ship in a musical storm front. Loud waves of guitars are crushing against the lead singer’s voice, the spray forming beautiful patterns. [Metaphorical music descriptions, ahoy!]
Lost In Trees has soft verses and a hard chorus. Best of both 🙂
