However this album may very well be his best yet! Picking up in the style of the last album (The Man Who Would not Die) Promise and Terror builds upon it's predicessor with an even more focused and tighter sound, a better production, and even better songs! Opening song 'Watching the Night Sky' just flat out rocks! Highly energenic and makes you want to crank up your stereo full blast! 'Madness and Sorrow' features long ripping trade off guitar solos, while '1633' is a bit more epic and Maidenish in nature. 'God of Speed' might just be the best song of the album, just a great creative song with a fantastic building chorus! The following 3 songs are all fantastic and album highlights as well!
The guitar playing on this album is Killer! As well as the drums and bass with a nice audible tone! And Blaze's vocals are in top form as well!
The last 4 songs are slower and I believe deal with the well documented loss of Blaze's wife. 3 of them I would consider ballads, and while not album highlights, they all are very well done with very personal and heartfealt lyrics obviously. 'The Trace of Things That have no Words' is more of a traditional mid-tempo metal track.
After the tragic loss of his wife, I was not expecting Blaze to release another album so soon, much less one even better than his awesome previous album (The Man Who Would Not Die).Read more ›
*Watching the Night Sky*
Great song. It starts off right away, fast, and maintains a steady flow of awesome throughout. What a nice way to kick off the album.
*Madness and Sorrow*
This one took a few listens to really click with me.. but once it did, I was hooked! Another fast, great song.
A solid track, this one. It starts off good, and slowly achieves greatness near the end. I like it.
*God of Speed*
Oh boy, God of Speed... I loved this one. Everything about it is just awesome. Blaze released a "taster clip" on his Myspace page, and I was immediately hooked.
*City of Bones*
This song was nice. Not one of my favorites from the album, but I enjoyed it none-the-less.
EDIT: City of Bones has really grown on me!
Another track Blaze teased us with prior to the release of the album. I love this song. It's a fast song, and very catchy. It really gets you pumped up for the rest of the album.
*Time to Dare*
Just coming off of Faceless, I wasn't sure what to expect with this one. Right when Time to Dare started playing, I couldn't believe what I was hearing. Right up there with God of Speed. I loved it right from the start. The album gets VERY interesting from here on out (in an epic way!)
*Surrounded by Sadness*
This, and the rest of the album's 3 tracks are connected. This one is very good, it's simple, yet deep. Blaze sounds incredible, and passionate with these last 4 songs.
*The Trace of Things That Have No Words*
Continuing seamlessly from Surrounded by Sadness, this one is just epic... Blaze is very powerful and awesome here.Read more ›

Great album. Last 4 tracks in particular. More of a power metal style than the BLAZE albums but great nontheless.Published 8 months ago by Christopher
i liked blaze's last CD very much (the man who would not die). while this one is good... it kinda runs out of gas at the end. once you hit song 5, they all start to blend together. Read morePublished on December 16, 2011 by Oscar A Wiggy
