After a very long wait for the latest album from this duo, fans will not be disappointed. Facing problems getting the producer Count O back into the states after Visa problems last year, they finally managed to pull it all together and release eight brand new tracks and four additional remixes. This album continues where my favorite album Necromancy left off combining very epic, emotional and classical elements together with mostly synthpop driving music. O' Magnum Mysterium is another example of greatness by this group. The managed to take a 16th century song, put it to a darkwave/synth sound and beautiful vocals for another real masterpiece. The album then continues on with the standard moving sound with Sentence Me as an emotional outpouring. Amongst other great tracks is another favorite of mine, most likely one of the better club-tracks on the album Carried Away. I have a hard time explaining the sound of this piece to describe what it is that really catches my attention, that sets it apart from the rest of the danceable tracks. But, like the others it's full of the things that make it great, but it also has just a slightly more driving element, more force and power behind it all that makes it that much more enjoyable. The album isn't all about the driving rhythm and power, but also includes some quite ethereal, laid-back tracks like Rust, Pretend and the very melancholy Chains. None captivate me quite as much as Rejoice, but they are still wonderful ballads. Add to these stellar tracks some nice remixes by Deathline International, Cassandra Complex and Razed in Black and you have that much more included in this album. Very highly recommended for fans of any of the remixers and because of some similarities to groups like Diary of Dreams and Diorama I would recommend it to these fans as well.
