The album has the same problem that their debut work – it severely lacks fast songs. The music is ok but I expect more driven and fast-paced material. The perfect balance was in “The Prophecies”. Nevertheless “The Last Horizon” is a solid comeback, I generally enjoy this work, the fans of Neoclassical Metal and old Kenziner works should not be disappointed, but Power Metal addicts should take into consideration that the general tempo is not very high.
The headliners are welcomed onstage with cheers and hollers as they launch head-first into ‘Brave This Storm’; the opening track fromVengeance Falls. Frontman Matt Heafy revels in the adoration, pulling his usual contorted facial expressions with tongue touching chin when it is not needed to deliver an impressive mix of melodic and growled vocals
