Musically this project wanders in various musical sub-genres of metal and moreover ! You will experience a journey from prog, symphonic and classic metal to the most folk and ethnic music paths!
I am also really impressed of the amazing performances at the operetic moments of the album.
Going to the whole concept of the album, as many people have already realized, this project glorifies through its music the history of Christianity … Yes, I already hear many of you complaining…BUT … If somebody can overcome his prejudice against this particular topic, will only have to win cause the quality of the music and of the artists will amuse you!
The Bible has infinite material that could inspire artists to create original and quality music, and in this particular case … that’s what happened! I finish listening to the album, having in my mind outstanding images but also being pleased by the musical variety that is generously offered through this project.
