    I love almost all the songs - Outremer might be my favorite. My least favorite is Ready for Salvation - this is just too slow for my tastes. I want something with a bit more feeling like "Moon of My Nights" if they are going to slow down.

    A really solid album overall - a lot like TBW part II, and that's not a bad thing.

    I have seen alot of references to this album being like TBW, and i have to disagree. Yes, it is more riff oriented, like the black waltz, with less melodies than previous albums, but I really don't see a main comparison with tbw. If anything this album encompasses a large amount of factors from every album so far. Making it pretty unique to me.

    Holy symphony of war is my favorite song on the album...it's got a bit of the old and the new style, and so much energy..
    Also Like a Slave is awesome, it's cool to see them try out new things while still keeping the old sound.
    Personally I think the entire album is awesome, there's not a single song that I skip (unlike 9/10 of all CD's I own, usually there's at least 1-2 songs that I ALWAYS skip)

    Suprising to see so many list Wings of Blackening as their favourite, but I guess we all have our different tastes.

    Right now I suppose my list would be:

    Dead Mans Shadow
    Ready For Salvation
    For The Revolution
    Like a Slave
    Outremer
    Wings of Blackening
    Coward
    Towards The Sky
    Holy Symphony Of War

    Though I love every track, I rank this album my favourite Kalmah to date.

    Interesting is right! So we can now assume Pekka is a Christian of some sort, but his view of "God" doesn't seem to be in line with the way God is presented by most mainstream churches today. It seems that Pekka believes in a God that is angry a lot of the time ;)

    Outremer lifts me up even I am in a bad mood or sad. There is great energy and happy power, like Marco itself. :)
    I also love Holy Symphony of War and Ready for Salvation. And Like a Slave.

    What makes you think he's christian?
    The part you said about god being angry, reminds me of Yahweh, another name given to god, sometimes in a punishing way when the always say god when they refer when he's forgiving.

    "Yahweh" comes from Jewish tradition and was the name they werent supposed to say.

    others believe that it comes from a Hebrew verb "to be" in the 3rd person singular.

    There were many other words refering to God in the Old Testament because saying God's name was concidered a sin.


    And I believe too, that Pekka at last showed his Christian approach in that very direct way. Needless to say, I love it!

    What's scaring me more than anything is that with Wings of Blackening Pekka basically puts Darwin, Hitler and Lenin on the same level... Am I the only one who sees the lyrics this way?

    Everyone can believe what they choose to, but I find this somewhat strange. Awesome song in any case :)

    i suppose he means by Vladimir, Vladimir Putin or am I completely wrong?!

    And people take the lyrics way too serious. I think they are are there to just make your own mind and make you think. Pekka just, in wing of blackening eg, says something and want to make people to think how it really is. And lyrics, i think, is there to mean something that you self think of and can recognize as something related to yourself and everyone can make ther own opinion what they are meaning. (Sounds weird in english:D but hope you know what i mean)
