However, after the drum roll, the vocals and music of the Saints in Torment song soar in a whirlwind of unrestrained drive, starting the musical flight of the Legion Of The Damned - The Poison Chalice album with a bright whirlwind of musical drive, followed by the rhythmic roll of the Contamination composition, entwined with clouded veils of musical mystery, but again and again accentuating rhythmic despair, receding before the bright guitar solo of the Progressive Destructor introduction, calling the warriors to be ready for the next campaign in search of valor and honor, again and again emphasizing the militancy of the squad protruding.
The guitar solo soars in an impatient whirlwind, anticipating the development of the musical procession of the Skulls Adorn the Traitor's Gate battle march, sharply and rapidly accelerating the sound with the introduction of vocals, but again returning to the rhythmic tread and similar transformations of rhythmics, but confidently, powerfully and persistently driving in the tread of the sound of the Behold the Beyond vocal speech, dragging into these spaces in order to achieve the deadly dance of the Retaliation violent musical thriller.
