Blackguard - Storm

The gloomy haze intrigues with the intro, then the By My Hand (Feat. Morgan Lander) saga of the heroic epic with wordless chorales precedes the development of its melody in the canvas of the main motive of the composition, marching with a harsh medium-tempo drive, alternating with fast-moving fragments, preserving the echoes of the heroic epic in the background.

Creating in the introduction the mystical thoughtfulness of an obscure tale In Dreams in a verses chases in a swift drive, fanned by sparks of symphonic trends, slowing down the pace in an episode in choruses. The inspired mid-tempo march Mourning Star raises the banners of the valiant anthem, combining screaming and growling in the vocal part, enveloping musical passages with shades of symphonic charm and echoes of background chorales.

Per Nilsson) first as continuation of the rapid drive of the previous track but complementing them with the melody and significance of the inspired hymn in which screaming and growling are intertwined with the vocals enveloping the completion of the album with impressive charm.
