Better later than earlier! If fact, you didn't miss a thing! EMPYRIUM is the first and the most famous of all Prophecy bands, plus there are ten years of activity celebrated now, and that's what makes this release into being one of homage, moreover that's the sole meaning of the CD. We are dealing with several tracks, chronologically presented, for about two or three from each EMPYRIUM album, remastered now. I tend to believe that among the thirteen tracks, the last two are new as they do not sound familiar to me! I believe it is a great guide for those just discovering EMPYRIUM, because it uncovers the maturity of the sound and finally, the stylistic transformation from one album to another. As for the rest, me included, it is just an hour for living and awakening memories...Indeed, ten years have passed!
