Very nice plus great special guestsThese band formed former keys of Within Temption- Martjin. Brought more melodic tunes with Female vox(Sharon of Within Temp...& Liv of Leavess Eyes') & heavyness male vox not less of Marco Hetiala (Nightwish) special guests. For me these album brought a mix of everything how should be a new wave of Symphony Metal. Every song is in a unique cosmic energy

there a mix of american and europe soundWell this album is a test for lacuna fans especialy for european fans. this album has some sound of american style. if you heard their early interviews Christina said that there's mix of both continents. i live in Ny but i am from Malta Europe, for sure i like songs Devoted , Without Fear, Invislble Light, The Game are my tops from this album. The others like our Truth, To The edge need time to like them. It is a good album. Lacuna have a lot fans in N.America, so they wanted to make them happy too.

In Flames back for goodAs you push play the 1 st track- Take my Life is pure heavy no sound or samples. Leeches is much more aggressive. As the album follows you hear the old drumming blast your ears and of course Bjorn solos touch are perfection. Also a special guest female vocals very surprised on Dead End, great duetto!!!!! Don't miss the melodic one too Come to Clarity, how life past by quickly, don't regret this album will be one of the best for the future too come. They are topping the charts, but pure agg.metal not commercial for sure.this is a good album don't wait for Metallica album it not their fault(BOB ROCK!!!!) for all there respect they inspired many bands.
