So, the bottom line is a solid album with a fantastic singer, tight musicianship and solid song material that combines traditional Last Autumn’s Dream AOR-stuff with a slightly more rockin’ note in sound. It is not a true evolution, but it is a step in the right direction to ensure that you don’t listen to the same arrangements again and again. If the songwriting itself would offer more hit potential and not just more of the same, this album could have been a very important turning point in LAD history. Maybe next time. For now you get a solid one which is made especially for Last Autumn’s Dream and Mikael Erlandsson fans, as well as people who can’t get enough of Scandi Rock.

After recent visits from North-American thrash legends Annihilator and Nuclear Assault, it’s time for a trio of old-school British thrash bands to invade Dublin for a session of head-banging and boozing. The relatively recent resurgence of thrash has seen many defunct bands resurrect themselves after decades of dormancy, and Xentrix and Acid Reign are just two examples. Judging by the size of the crowd gathered in the Voodoo Lounge tonight, it seems that their return is a welcome one.
