They also incorporate some additional elements that increase the album’s already dramatic scale. On opener Handshake With Hell Alissa White-Gluz cuts loose with some clean vocals that soar above the tumult, while on Poisoned Arrow they add some strings that lend a cinematic air, brief instrumental Mourning Star sounding like it could be the work of film composer Hans Zimmer.
Closing on the epic Exiled From Earth they sign off on a high point, leaving you wanting to listen to the whole thing again. Not bad for a band who not long ago celebrated their 25th anniversary, and hopefully this is the start of a whole new, exciting phase for them.
