A Violent Sleep of Reason” isn’t an album on which the band reinvents their sound. They keep their roots and inspiration with fine-tuning it to ultimate math-brutality.
At just over 70 minutes, Terminal is a very long album, but it never even begins to overstay its welcome. It’s an excellent gothic/doom metal album which is highly recommended to anyone who enjoys that mixture of styles, and to anyone who enjoys music that can seamlessly transition from calm to chaotic (or do the opposite of that) within seconds.
Less than a month is left until the new Avantasia opus ‘Ghostlights’ is released – on January 29th, 2016 via Nuclear Blast.
