The other point note about this album is that it is fairly relentless from start to finish, the track "The Raven" has a slower almost operatic opening with some great slower guitar chord progression. The track "This Wall" has an almost thrash style beginning at the 3:31 mark of this track unlike so many other international bands around.The bands native tongue of Italian is used briefly which makes for an unexpected change.

With some solid guitar soloing at the "Endless Night" which is very 80's in it's vocal delivery, this is not a bad point. If anything I believe it keeps the listener engage and mixes up the album nicely. The drumming on this record is outstanding, the only downside that I can hear is that the overall bass tends to get a little lost but then again it may just be me. The artwork on the front cover is interesting, it depicts two people torn in half with knives held in an almost war like pose.

Overall a solid effort! If you enjoy lots of intricate guitar riffs, pounding drums and unmistakable power metal vocal delivery then this album is for you.
