The most songs are good but the pace is not enough to me. Too many slow ballads are annoying. The first album was much more energetic and it is very pity that musicians lost their fervor. The band had a great potential after the debut album but decided to grow in different way. I am sure that many metalheads will appreciate this work and primarily “The Waking Hour” is recommended to all fans of Brazilian music-influenced Melodic and Prog Metal; however, the lovers of Power Metal could be possibly dissatisfied with the total lack of speed.
