This is the 19th studio album of Magnum. 40 years of Rock history and many great hymns and immortal, epic tracks. So that is what the audience expects from a new album, as no one wants experiments or changes in style. The album begins perfectly with the title track and three more fantastic Hard Rock songs, but does show some weaker moments halfway through.

While not a single song is really bad, a few will fail to catch your attention and sail in waters too shallow for a connoisseur’s taste. Towards the end, Magnum regains the strength displayed in the opening tracks and brings Sacred Blood “Divine” Lies to a satisfying ending. While the British band is far too good to disappoint, the new album cannot push The Visitation off the throne as the best Magnum album of the new millennium.

    Frank was a reviewer here at Metal Express Radio, based out of Bavaria, Germany. He has worked in the games industry for more than 20 years, now on the manufacturing side, before on the publishing end. Before this, he edited and handled the layout for a city mag in northern Germany ... maybe that is why he love being part of anything published. Frank got hooked on Metal at the age of 14 when a friend introduced him to AC/DC. They were listening to The Beatles, Madness, and The Police, and he decided they should move on. Well, they did, Back in Black became Frank's first Metal album, and since Germany is reasonably close to England, they had some small New Waves Of British Heavy Metal washing up on their shores: Tygers Of Pan Tang, Samson, Gillan, Iron Maiden, Saxon, Sweet Savage, Diamond Head, etc. If he had to pick his favorite styles, Prog and Power Metal would be at the top of the list.
