The Tale of the Golden King is a 72-minute concept presented in 10 gapless tracks. The concept is based on medieval sleeping hero and mountain king legends. Like previous albums by The Psychedelic Ensemble, the music blends symphonic rock and other progressive rock genres. The Tale of the Golden King introduces new colors to the usual sonic palette of The Psychedelic Ensemble with the inclusion of orchestra and lead and backing vocals by Ann Caren.
“Children of the Dark Waters is the sixth studio album by Finnish band Eternal Tears of Sorrow. It is scheduled for release in May 2009 through Suomen Musiikki for Finland, Massacre Records for the rest of Europe and Marquee/Avalon Records for Asia. It is the second album to feature Jarmo Kylmänen on clean vocals, but his first album as an official member.
The album will be in the same vein as Before the Bleeding Sun, but darker. "Angelheart, Ravenheart (Act II: Children of the Dark Waters)" is the second part of "Angelheart, Ravenheart (Act I: Before the Bleeding Sun)" from Before the Bleeding Sun. On the UK Amazon edition "Vilda Mánnu" is replaced by "Sea of Whispers (Acoustic Reprise)" as a bonus track.
The album's first single was "Tears of Autumn Rain" released in Finland on February 18 and featured female vocals by Miriam Renvåg (Ram-Zet) and Heidi Parviainen (Amberian Dawn). The B-side of the single is a reworked version of "Vilda Mánnu" from the self-titled album, Vilda Mánnu. The album was mixed at Finnvox Studios (Helsinki, Finland) in March and April 2009 by Mikko Karmila and like the previous five albums, it was recorded at Tico-Tico Studios in Kemi. Lead guitarist Risto Ruuth left the band right before the release of the album, and was replaced by Mika Lammassaari (from Mors Subita).” – WIKIPEDIA
"Law Of The Order" is a CD that is hard to categorize. This isn’t your typical hair metal. It isn’t flamboyant enough to be glam (but they sure tried to market the band that way). This is more of a straight forward hard rock cd, and a very good one at that. "Law Of The Order" is one of those CD’s that you truly need to hear to appreciate. There are several really good songs on this disc including Paris Calling, Somebody’s Falling, Get Some Strange, Passion to Ashes, and an excellent jamming cover of the Fleetwood Mac tune, The Chain.
