The DLA review of Persecution Mania makes the major issue of that album very apparent. Lets take one of my half favourite (will explain why) songs for instance; Christ Passion. This song is basically similar to the track Persecution Mania, only filled with totally idiotic mood ruining `thrashy` bouncy riffs. One moment you are enjoying the deepening dark mood, the next moment its back to totally out of place idiocy. If that song was stripped of half its content it would be the best track on the album. Anyway, its still cool. I even like Agent Orange.
Been listening to Lost horizon. Really solid stuff, putting it right up there with Sanctuary and Adramelch as some of the best power metal I have heard. You can even hear some Luciferion in it. The only complaint I have is the songs can go on too long without variation.
Also been listening to Mozart`s K310 Piano Sonata 8 in Am played by Denis Matthews. The Presto is the most metal thing I have heard that isnt metal; a beautiful melody turns into a vice grip on the soul. But I am a simple man so I still prefer my metal ^_^ (P.S.: Strongly recommend Denis Matthews, the man has an awesome musical sense).
