The album starts out with melodic females and keyboards and a few seconds later the music goes into a more heavy modern day gothic metal direction along with some symphonic elements and melody in the guitar riffing.
When the album goes into other songs the music really starts going for a symphonic approach to gothic metal as well as bringing in a mixture of male and female vocals as well as having back up vocals in certain sections of the recording and after awhile solos and leads become a part of the album and on couple of the tracks black and death metal vocals are added into the music.
Delian are another band that mixes the symphonic side of metal with gothic pop while also having a small amount of death and black metal influences and the music is very melodic, pop and melancholic sounding.
Song lyrics cover dark, depressive and poetic themes, while the production has a very strong, powerful, heavy and professional sound where you can hear all of the musical instruments that are present on this recording.
In my opinion Delian are a very great sounding symphonic, gothic metal band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Here Come The Vultures" "My Masquerade" "Army Of Dolls" and "The Tragedy of The Commons". 8 out of 10.
