There's no doubt that it is quality stuff, who likes power and ethnic music elements fused will probably like it, but I've heard some local power bands that would kill 'em on stage.

Saw them live this summer, not particularly kickass, but it was pretty alright. Some very high vocals and speedy guitars as my drummer-friend called it tongue.gif

There isn't too much differences between Jani and the new guitarist. I don't know if it is good or bad. But Tony Kakko is a great songwritter. He always has an Ace on the sleeve

At first, I thought...No jani, there goes all the feeling and melodic ideas in SA...But i was wrong, it actually maintained that vibe of some sort. smile.gif

I can tell its not Jani, there isn't that strong expression in it, the heavy vibrato or big slides that I liked. Still its good. A lot better than Unia, which was just such a let down for me.

So can I, but still, he tried to absorve some of Jani's Vibe and, for me, he did good.

I'll be seeing these guys live in about a week or two when they open for DragonForce. I've listened to some of their other stuff on youtube, and thought it was pretty good.

I've heard the whole album.. and i'm not really sure what to think yet.
The first half is absolutely fantastic! And thats not an understatement..

But it all falls apart in the 2nd half. The 2nd half consists of songs that sounds unfinished and unstructured. It basically sounds like experimentation gone slightly wrong.

It's not "BAD" though, it's just a huge letdown after the first half.

I have to agree with Trond.
The first half is amazing smile.gif
The first song after the intro is one of the best songs I've heard actually!
But as you say, it falls apart midway through with filler songs sad.gif
