A Modern Traditional Metal Classic
Mattowarrior | Madison, WI United States | 09/04/2002
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This band, hailing from Sweden, has been doing traditional metal alot longer than there coutrymates Hammerfall. Starting out as a death metal band, they evolved to the classic/power metal band they are today slowly. This album stands as their best to me, seeming to be a mixture of Yngwie Malmsteen's Rising Force and Riot's Thundersteel if it had Uriah Heep's original singer Dave Byron. All in all, an AMAZING album, the sweep solos done by their lead guitarist are alot more memorable than Yngwie's and the riffs rule !"
A short but honest review

"one of my first heavy metal albums since my old university years in Chile. even this is de secon album most of people think is first. This and sacred talisman are the classic and best work of Nocturnal Rites . TO Say simple the voice of Zackrisson made a totally different sound talking about the similar music in heavy metal melodic groups, Guitars and harmonics are constantly shouting and telling to you that this is the real classic heavy metal.
i was very sad when knew Zackrisson left.... Then the band took the tipical progresive way that you find in to many bands today
In my collection this is top ten
hope that it helps you

"I only received this album yesterday from amazon, and already I have listened to it -in it's entirity - four or five times. This a superb album with great musicianship and songs of true metal. This band remind me of Helloween with a hint of manowar, the singer sounds very much like the singer on Yngwie Malmsteen's 'Facing the animal' , he is one awesome singer and can really hit those high notes well. The guitar work on this album is excellent, as is the drumming, if you like good musicianship then you will appreciate this album. I would reccommend this album to anyone who likes power metal or NWOBHM music, and to metal fans in general. Now I have finished this review I am going to buy their other album."
