I wasn't really sure what to expect from this album. Their last 2 records IMO were great. The Crusade and Shogun were both excellent, yet quite different, albums. That made me uneasy for this one. When I heard the 1-off they did, Shattering The Skies Above, I was excited. I really liked that song. Then the title track streamed, and while I didn't dig it as much as Shattering, I still liked it. I definately had hope for the album, then I checked it all out upon it's release. Don't get me wrong, there are some good songs on this album. The title track, Dusk Dismanted, and 2-3 towards the end are decent. But overall, this album is a huge disappointment to me. Nowhere near as heavy as any of their previous releases, too many whiny vocals, and certain sections on at least 4 songs are such arena rock cheese, I almost threw up.
