The second disc is the second part.
In place of speed-power metal comes a slow epic and mid-tempo music. The album begins with a 14-minute epic track "The Seven Angels". The second part is no worse than the first, only made a little differently. Neither scale, nor melody were not affected. Thoughtfulness in details, a variety of arrangements and vocals - all in the best possible form. After a such album, it's almost impossible to say something new in traditional power metal. So here is the answer to the question, why Sammet and Edguy has began to depart from the canons of heavy-power on their subsequent albums.
