The CD begins with a choice movie dialogue sample from the film "Malice" where Alec Baldwin, playing an egomaniacal super-surgeon, intones, "You ask me if I have a God-complex? Let me tell you something...I am God." Then the opening track, "Twisted Eyes", surges forth with stampeding force and instantly engages the listener with agressive guitars and Blind Guardian-like layered vocal choruses. However, unlike their previous release, "Evolution Purgatory", most of the hooks on "When Eden Burns" are contained in the choruses with sustained guitar chords underneath, the promising instrumental "Zion" notwithstanding. This might have fans screaming "sell-out" in droves if it were not for the strong songcraft and often superb arrangements. The weakest song in this Power Metal chain comes from the fairly simplistic "Slaves of Labour" which takes a long time to get anywhere near interesting before degrading once again into verse/chorus/verse dynamics. For the most part the songs here are mid-tempo incantations that expand and contract at the will of the guitar riffs and double-bass drumming. While "Evolution Purgatory" seems to accelerate throughout the track list until its explosive finale, "When Eden Burns" takes a few more spins to fully appreciate. I can still hear the occasional In Flames and Iron Maiden influences strewn throughout, but Blind Guardian is once again the primary influence here often conjuring memories of their superb release, "Imaginations from the Other Side." First time buyers might do better to pick up "Evolution Purgatory" for a more instant, cathartic gratification, but "When Eden Burns" shows Persuader's songcraft maturing to the point where flash and substance can indeed co-exist.Read more ›

Some of the best Power Metal I've heard in a really long time. I was so pleasantly surprised to hear something in the veins of Iced Earth and Blind Guardian but even slightly more aggressive. COULD NOT ASK FOR MORE.

I like this album too, but I must vehemently disagree with the other reviewer about the sample at the start of the album. It's a terrible choice and sticks out like a sore thumb. It's instantly recognizable, even if you've only seen previews of the movie Malice. Even if I didn't know the quote, I think I would immediatly know it was Alec Baldwin speaking... and his persona doesn't exactly coincide with the mood of the music. I know it all seems like a minor point. After all, it's only about 5 or so seconds of speech. But it's the first thing on the album! It just sets the wrong mood. One could turn on Turner Classic Movies, and in a matter of minutes come across a better quote to use, and one that most people have no previous associations with. Why would I want to be reminded of a subpar 90's thriller right as my mind is open, anticipating listening to and evaluating a new piece of music? I really wish bands would stop using such recognizable quotes. It takes you out of the music in a most unpleasant way. And this quote is just terrible anyways... nonsensical even. I remember it being extensively mocked actually when the movie came out. Really, quite lame... it's just such an awful choice for an otherwise good album.
