I miss Fall of Efrafa as well. So sad I'll never be able to see them live.

Just so you know, the only member of FOE in Light Bearer is Alex. He writes the lyrics but doesn't compose any of the music.

A couple listens in and I'm a bit disappointed to be honest. Maybe my expectations were too high but I just find this album to be a lot less memorable and epic than Lapsus. The melodies and riffs just fall a little short for me. The length is also a bit taxing and there are a few transitions that seemed abrupt and inorganic. Still top ten for me most likely but probably not aoty like I had hoped for.
