Since the new Firewind isn't delayed, here's my thoughts:

- I think this is a better album than the last couple outings, which I found rather bland.

- Gus is trying to make the band heavier. He succeeds, but...

- The new singer is trying way too hard. He sounds strained on a lot of the songs, and not all that pleasant.

- Gus' riffs are mostly generic, but the melodies are better this time around.

- It's still a far cry from what I think were their best days (with Apollo). In fact, matching them up, Apollo's on the better record this year.

- It's a perfectly solid record, but I doubt I'll be coming back to it very often.
