Queen of Time is one ambitious album that shares a tale about the rise and fall of civilization. One could compare it to stories from lost civilizations in history such as Atlantis, or others can interpret it as the downfall of our present-day reality that doomsday could be upon us.
Influences and inspirations comes from places sometimes little known or not traditionally popular. Such is the case often with bands in the power metal genre. As I have stated on many occasions the genre was so great at one point, perhaps leading the way in producing so many talented musicians, but as with anything, it got way to overcrowded and mimicked, hence the originality of the music significantly dropped after a while.
