A classic of german melodic hardrock, brilliant. 'Heart of stone' was titletrack of an german TV series called 'der bastard'. In those days domain were one of the best bands from germany, now they are only shadows of themselves making crap!

Got to agree with the above statement, that for fans of this era of the band the new stuff doesn't really compare. This album ain't amazing and is very generic, but they know their craft and they do it well. Not brilliant, but a more than worthy addition to European melodic rock lovers.

Solid rock disc. Keyboard driven hardrock. It lacks a little in hooks & dynamics area to make it classic.It becomes a little predictable after a while. Still worth checking out .7/10

From: rick kerch vzla Date: May 6, 2007 at 17:27
This is not as good as their debut.I got it just when it came out (i did the same with their debut which it just blew my mind when i listened to it)and i was a little dissapointed to be honest.I mean the songs are ok but that's just about,nothing great,shamely...6.5/10

Melodic Hardrock/AOR de muy buena factura bien atmosf'rico con esos teclados maravillosos, parece que estamos escuchando discos distintos eh amigos? . 'Lost Without Trace' define al disco, joyita de muchos kilates, se me qued' en la mente a la primera. 'I Can See The Light' Mega-temazo! qu' teclados, qu' riff, qu' atm'sfera. 'Hearts Of Stone' qu' recuerdos al tema 'Moscu' . S'per-Discazo para m'. 9.5/10 y me quedo corto..

Not so bad.. I'm more into AOR so it's not that much mine. BUT --'Hearts of stone' is such a p*e*r*f*e*c*t AOR song!! And 'caught in the flame' is a good piece of (typically German) melodicrock. 'Edge of the knife' is a nice, little melodicrock ballad. Next to compatriot bands as CRAAFT & CASANOVA. 79/100

From: koogles Date: February 9, 2008 at 12:39
Starts off a bit generic but, by the middle, things start really cookin! 'All for One' reminds me of something from Kane Roberts or late 80s Alice Cooper. Great anthem song, and a great CD. Very steady-handed melodic rock throughout... 'Lost Without Trace' is pure mid-tempo AOR brilliance, reminiscent of Signal or Ya Ya. Big, Giuffria-style synth keyboards dominate the soaring pomp of 'I Can See The Light'. The CD ends on a high note with the Asia-esque 'Hearts of Stone', complete with swirling

From: koogles Date: February 9, 2008 at 12:40
keyboards and a real cool build-up throughout. Highly recommended... one of my all-time favorite German hard rock CDs!

Manny...That's right dude...i'm from Venezuela!.Where are you from?.

DOMAIN are the "Krautrockers" KOLBE and JACKSON from the band EPITAPH. Check out their new album "Dancin with ghosts" after they left DOMAIN this band lost my interest.

Ratings are better than the comments. And Imo thatīs correct. How can someone post "it lacks a little in hooks"? Thatīs a joke! Extremely catchy uptempo Melodic hard rock with lots of keys. Love it. Not all songs are classic but thereīs no filler in sight. 90/100

Listening to this again and let me tell you right away that i was wrong in my first comment(may 6th,2007)...actually this album kicks a** in what we can call "Melodic Rock terns"...for me the band's debut is the ONE but this follower has also some great tunes such as the opener "Caught In The Flame"(the best cut IMO),"Beg Steal Or Borrow","Keep Running","Hideaway"(AOR feel),"All For One"(AOR feel)& "Lost Without Trace"(nice softie)...recommended...90/100
