“It’s a real treat when a band you’ve followed for the better part of two decades releases an album like this.” 9.5/10 – USA Progressive Music

“Unlike many of their contemporaries they’ve steered clear of orchestral interference. No, they’ve not gone death/thrash/black or any other non-metallic offshoot, but this isn’t galloping rhythms end-to-end.” – Brave Words & Bloody Knuckles

“…an enjoyable power metal release that thankfully leaves the cheese at home and delivers potent tunes that are well played and memorable.” 4/5 – Sea of Tranquility

“Whether you’re a new Gamma Ray fan, or if you’ve followed them since 1990, you’ll love this album.” – Metal Assault
