Most groups tend to start their albums with their best tracks, but for me, this one kick starts from track five 'Raven', with a Glenn Tipton classic Priest riff, the album starts to take flight.
The previous four tracks are fine, but the albums really starts to build from here.
Followed by the more melodic 'Into The Heart Of Danger', which seems designed for TV channels like Scuzz.
'Machine Revolution' cranks it back up, closely followed by the storming 'Kingdom'.
'Over The Top' again belts out the timeless (Priestesq) riffs, 'Fight, Kill, Die' sets a ferocious pace throughout,
'Black Ninja' is fairly average, before they unleash the awesome finale 'Rain Man'.
Great riffs, great solo's, great song, it will have you singing the chorus hours later.
I have to admit, I generally do not like female metal singers; sure fine for melodic rock ie Tarja, Anette Olzon, Simone Simons etc, but not metal.
Maybe this is why it didn't get the full 5 stars, I'm not totally convinced I enjoy her vocal, but it definitely does not stop this being a really great follow up album.
