  1. The follow-up [to "Kezia"], Fortress, mines similar territory but cranks the ferocity even higher.
  2. It's a scarily mature album for a bunch of 21 year olds to have recorded, and the pairing of its ambitious lyrical concepts and motivated songwriting is something to be admired.

    Quite possibly my favourite album of all time. This is the album that opened my mind to the metal genre and got me listening to everything I could get my hands on. I used to strictly enjoy one genre of metal but because of this glorious ban enjoy a bit of everything. Took me a few listens to really enjoy it but boy was it worth it. Full Review »
