This is the fifth album of this killer Canadian power metal band! The album of HANKER is definitely one of the strongest comebacks for 2010 (along with SCORPIONS, HEATHEN, OVERKILL and ENFORCER)! Canada seems to be on top form these past few years and the releases of HANKER, EVIL SURVIVES, SKULLFIST and STRIKER are here to prove me right. The album is in the known style of HANKER -technical power metal which has its own identity! The album is definitely one of their best and for me it is in the top 5 releases of the year! The songs even though last long and are technical don’t tire the listener at all! It isn’t so easy to say which are the best songs but “Beyond the Pale”, “Who’s Crying Loud?” , “Feel it Again” and the homonym track are among the top. The production is really good and the guitar work that has been done is tremendous! This is a must for the fans of power metal and a really good choice for the rest of the metal heads.
