'The Great Divide' is really great. At last Tollki has found good fitting vocalists (this really matters - just compare, for example, Revolution Renaissance's first album and the same-titled Stratovarius demo).
If The Revenge was a masterpiece - 10/10, the new one album is only 6/10 according to my rate. As for me, Magnus was really better and more various composer, Timo is boring. Nevertheless both vocals on this work are brilliant as always!
According to a recent interview with Russell that I read, he and Jorn have actually never even met in person. And I remember him saying he hasn't met Magnus either... he just records his vocals and sends 'em in... so strange considering how passionately performed the music is...
I'm a big fan of y & t and this band in all respects, reminds me of them, powerful vocals, masterfully put together. Lead gutair is awesome, drums kicking ass. What I respect the most about this band, never want to skip any tracks cause it's good all the way through!
