Same formula as their first release. A step forward in the bands favor. A very talented band.

Great Vox from John West !!

From: WhiteLion Date: December 20, 2002 at 9:03
Indeed this is a great album. A must have for the proglover!!!

From: Rycheage Date: May 31, 2004 at 18:39
I am amazed at the talent level of this band, the diversity of the music, the ease at which they tackle several styles of music, and the fact that they have turned up the volume to a level that belies what they did on their first disc. I love it when the doors of metal swing open and bands like Artension come blasting through and play music as good as this. Fans of Symphony X, Angra, Rainbow, and others of this nature are sure to take to this disc as well.

I agree with Rycheage ! This is complex, bombastic stuff ! Kuprij is a real keyboard wizard. Only problem I have with Rycheage's comment is the comparison with Angra. Angra is definately not in the same leguae as Rainbow, Symphony X and this band. Great stuff, this !

this is great album...Blood Brother & Phoenix Rising are my fav tracks.....and especially john wests voice is amazing in Phoenix Rising!!!

From: rick kerch vzla Date: May 13, 2011 at 23:29
A bit more agressive in sound,a great album that followed their "Into The Eye Of The Storm" debut..."Area 51","Valley Of The Kings","Blood Brother"(reminds me of the band Rainbow),"Into The Blue" & "Forbidden Love"...92/100
