    'BREAKING NEWS!! We are sad to say that Magnus will not be a member of ENGEL anymore. We had a really good run and we will miss him very much. There is no hard feelings between ENGEL and Magnus and we parted ways as friends, carrying with us a lot of good times and awesome memories. .....

    Hmmm, not sure why, but I'm really enjoying Blood of Saints. I don't think it matched Threnody, but still an awesome listen...

    Needed a lot of time to grow on me and even after that the new album is lame and boring for me. Two maybe three songs might be enjoyable (not great tracks, though) but all in all very, very disappointing. After Question Your Place it was obvious Engel was putting more electronic stuff in it, which is fine with me (as long as it is not that sickness called dubstep) but they totally lost the focus when it comes to kick ass riffs, straight-in-your-face-rhythms/swing-your-goddamn-head-to-the-rhytm-sound as on their prior works like in For Those Who Will Resist, Roll The Dice, Propaganda, In Splendour and so on.. Really sad..
