I will say it wasn't as epic, but it's because I feel there's a different tone to the record. As where Lapsus was more about betrayal, this seems to be more about Lucifer's vengeance, and the start of the war between him and the false god. He's angry and wants to get his word out and expose the false god's lies. I don't usually think the music is intertwined with lyrics in a lot of metal, but it seems to be with Light Bearer, even if Alex only writes the lyrics.
