New and good melodic metalband from Sweden ! I think we all know mr. Vikstrom, the shouter on this disc. He's doing a great job here, but the other boys are also doing a great job ! Very nice suprise ! One of the many coming out of Sweden !

This is truly another swedish masterpiece. Great melodic hard rock/metal with huge 80's influences. You can hear obvious NWOBHM (Iron Maiden, Saxon, Judas Priest) influences everywhere....mixed with a few american vibes like Dokken, Stryper etc. This band actually started way back in the early 80's and some of the songs on "Beyond The Shadows" originate from way that period of time. I strongly recommend this album!

Iíve heard some audio samples and this seams very good for my tastes.I have the previous ep with inhedit 4 tracks and it already sounded very good for me!

This is really good hard rock. Sounds like it could have been released in the 80's. The singer really reminds me of Steve Walsh in places. That's not bad, because his voice is usually tougher, but still has that Walsh feel. Secret Journey is so Kansas-like, it's scary. Reaper of Souls sounds like Black Sabbath ala TYR or Headless Cross. Also has a Joe Lynn Turner feel to other songs. Overall, a very good album. Great vocals, well written songs, good playing and production. Not sure I would go so far as to call it metal. More just really hard rock, but anyway, I highly recommend it!

By the way, they may be from Sweden, but sure as hell sounds like American made rock and roll to me. VERY GOOd!
