13 Gothic Metal tracks, presented in an unoriginal manner... meaning MANDRAKE. More inspired and melodic than before, the new sound highly insists on Birgit Lau's feminine voice, slightly reminding me of early THE GATHERING. Guitars are quite present, and the keyboard enhances the created atmosphere... I don't find the masculine voices as being the best choice, but this matters less. Despite the sound's progress throughout the bombastic lines of MANDRAKE's music, the album is quite fade, effaced evenly on certain fragments.
