Pretty much carrying on the musical formula from Dystopia. I am not a fan of the 'sing-a-long' choruses evidenced in four or five songs and I think they are a little cheesy/commercial and Iced Earth are not and were never a cheesy metal band. Stu is a fine vocalist but Matt had that unique underground vocal delivery which suited Iced Earth's music.
They have lost their brutality a bit and I hope they get it back on the next album but doubt it
