Even if you're not a fan of traditional heavy metal in the vein of Iced Earth or recent Arch Enemy, this is still well worth checking out. Excellent guitars, melodramatic vocals that fit the music perfectly, crystal clear production, and social lyrics rather than the usual Warhammer 40000 guff. Every song is catchy, but the best tracks here are the emotive Evolution 169, and the fantastic ballad, The Heart Collector. The latter song is cheesy but brilliant; the kind of song that Brian May, Slash and Steve Harris would have written had they ever jammed together.
