This album by Swedish outfit Falconer is a welcome addition to the ever-growing genre of folk metal. The songs are arranged in a chronology, which tells the story of a young king come to power and the progression of his reign. Each song is accompanied by a lyrical prologue in the booklet, which when read prior to listening, gives each song a certain extra element of enjoyment to be had. My particular favourite is the 7 or 8 minute epic Sceptre of Deception (the album's title track), a song which includes some very nice melodic heavy parts plus some beautiful "hey nonny nonny" folk parts.

All in all it is a very strong album with no filler tracks or skits. It is just music, which is what you expect when you buy an album. I can highly recommend it to anyone who enjoys folk metal. I cannot however recommend it to any of you out there who prefer your metal with a lottle more bite. It is very melodic with clean vocals, no growling!!

Falconer is a Swedish metal band with an element of fantasy incorperated into their lyrics. on the back of the case, the track listings are difficult to read but when you get to the songs, you'll be surprised by the addictivness of the songs.
The whole album is really one long musical, a fantasy book. In the lyric booklet it explains a prolouge, there is a paragragh of that and then it continues into a song and then another paragragh or two and another song.

Falconer - The Sceptre of Deception 11 Jun. 2008
By MOTU Review - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
"The Sceptre of Deception" (2003) is the third release from Swedish folk/power metal band Falconer. This is a concept album; all the songs have to do with a story of Falconer's own devising, and which is further explained in the liner notes.

Broadway-style singer Matthias Blad has been replaced by Kristoffer Göbel (although Blad does appear on this album). Göbel's voice is vaguely similar, although he sings much more in the metal tradition.

Musically, Falconer continues to write interesting (if not amazing) power metal songs with catchy choruses. There's not a bad song on this album, but there's nothing destined for the metal hall of fame, either.

On the whole, this is quite a decent power metal album, although with Göbel replacing Blad, Falconer takes a step back toward the rest of the power metal pack.

Finally grew on me 9 April 2004
By SEAN C JORDEN - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
First of all, I actually came into Falconer under their previous incarnation with the incomperable Blad on vocals. Chapters of a Vale Forlorn was an excellent offering musically and vocally and of course I was dissapointed to hear that Blad had decided to pursue other endeavors.
When I first heard this album, I was certainly not impressed - the music did not seem to be up to par. However, something happened around the fourth or fifth listen, and I found myself cherishing certain parts of songs in the same way I did before.
This is a CD to be enjoyed - its well written and the new singer has added some power that did not exist before. You will love it.. eventually!

Falconer just won't die 19 May 2004
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
It's depressing to see people judging this album based on the lineup. Yes it sucks that Matthias Blad isn't in the Falconer anymore but they did well finding someone with a similar voice who would preserve the sound of the band. Kristoffer and Matthias actually sing together or trade off on several of the tracks and they sound like identical twins. This is a great album in the tradition of the first two. The songwriting is creative and diverse, definitely more so than on Chapters. The hints of accoustic guitar, keybords and operatic backing vocals all combine to create a very mystical atmosphere in the midst of driving power metal that Falconer has always done better than most. Docked a partly for the lyrics, which really needed to be proofread by a native speaker, and the minimalist liner notes reading like a zany video game quote.

Decent power metal 19 Jan. 2004
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This was my first Falconer album so I don't know what the previous singer sounded like to make a comparison, as others have. I like his voice; at times I hears hints of Ozzy or Eric Adams of Manowar. This band reminds me of Manowar a bit but I'm not a big metalhead so I can't make any other comparisons for you. I don't like real angry heavy metal, so this fits the bill for me as it is a concept album, telling a story song-by-song. I like the medieval touches; I wish there was a bit more of them. I also like the tempo changes and furious double-bass drumming, but the songwriting could be a bit stronger. Half the songs are good; the other half don't really stick as outstanding.
