Quick Review


One Word Review: Savage

Act II continues the saga in, if possible, an even more epic way than Act I. There is a special relaxed, epic vibe to the whole album, and the music is allowed to span two CD's, giving it more room to breathe and evolve.

Together, the three cd's or 4 LP's that make up The House Of Atreus, are an always glorious, rousing listen, and will stand as a milestone in Heavy Metal history.
