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.
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.
