Lance King is a somewhat polarizing vocalist, mainly because of how high-pitched his voice is. However, his voice lends itself to the variety of power metal that Pyramaze plays, so it usually either improves the band or serves as another reason to detract it; it's not as often when someone likes the band, but dislikes Lance King. Obviously, I'm in the former group; I think that Lance King is a great singer and that his voice really supports each story in each song or across the entire album. I drastically prefer him to Matt Barlow performance, but that speaks less for Barlow than it does for King. Lance King's tenure in Pyramaze also created a powerful, yet extremely melodic variety of sound for the band that is preferable to Immortal's. For this album, the adjective in the title is apt; the atmosphere does sound rather down, which molds with the melody quite nicely. The final product creates something that I really like, yet I've never found either an alternative or a rival for it beyond the second of this band's offerings.

Next album... is definitely there for the same reason as Faustian Evangelion. Nothing stands out from it, but I still really liked it in spite of that. I don't think that this next write-up will be very good, even by my standards.
