Pffou !!! This one is really heavy. A kind of Cathedral meets Forte, even so Nervermore is really not far. Much more melodic compare to Cathedral in fact, but songs are really powerful with almost always mid-tempo rhythm. After "super" first track (Nightmare World), the 7 other tracks are a bit "anonymous". Really nothing new here and vocals are sometime "limit-limit". It ends like it started, with a very powerful cool song of more than 12 minutes (Dreamscape).

Overall not bad (guitar riffs are actually cool), but I have heard this kind of power metal a thousand time. I will "judged" Eidolon on next one. There are interesting moments on this Nightmare World, but also too much "boring" moments to explode our metal-heads. Based on first and last track, I think next album can be much more mature & interesting.
Keep the faith guys !!! ... I almost forgot, very nice cover-art !
