Nocturnal Rites' sophomore album encapsulates much of the trends that were part of the Euro power metal scene's golden past, and as a result, the album is very unique among all the contemporaneous releases. That means that you would not expect the crappy watered-down flower metal sound, which means that your ears would not suffer the diluted riffs repeating the "Freewheel Burning" intro riff and the repetitive double bass drumming. Instead, the band offers a very solid guitar playing and a drumming that overtop the expectations of the most demanding listeners. Further, Fredik Mannberg as a lead guitarist, provides incredible guitar solos with the typical neoclassical notes that Yngwie Malmsteen may have exploited. Zackrisson's vocals bring in a US power metal touch, as his nasal style can be found in other acts, such as, Manilla Road, Medieval Steel, among others. Unfortunately, his vocals are widely underrated, but it is worth it to save this discussion for those who understand what the US power metal is about.
