Man, these Spaniards have changed! New vocalist - Ron Finn, Ex-MACE, an American, kinda brokered by Chris Caffery (SAVATAGE). And also soundwise, a lot more straighter, sounding like finest US-Power Metal with some slight progressive elements, but that great!
Already the duo of "Regeneration" and "Stranger" (which is a re-release of an older song) sweeps through the speakers like a freshly born tornado, powerful (vocally as musically), a damn tight rhythm-section, very good riffing, just great stuff and also the following "World Is Coming Down" is absolutely convincing, the comparison with VICIOUS RUMORS definitely can not be put aside and that is good!
The Gentlemen (Javier) Villanueva and Castellanos are producing lots of very good riffs and hooks and Finn's voice perfectly suits the crunchy sound of the Iberians, the already mentioned rhythm-section is driving everything forward perfectly. So is everything gold? No, not completely, because one or two songs can be found that cannot keep up that level, but still they are far from being fillers. Oh yes, on "Freedom Fighter", which rises in heaviness and speed, Jean Michel Jarre- and ELEGY-axeman Patrick Rondat added a solo.
A surprisingly strong sign of life from Spain, which every genre-fan should have heard, that the CD will then change owner is definitely not to be ruled out! (Online July 30, 2002)
