Sound: What can we say? Bringing together a power metal legend Timo Kotipelto, with one of the best guitarists, Jani Liimatainen, and ranked fourth best keyboardist Mikko Harkin, one can not expect anything other than one of the best power metal CDs. With concise, clear sound, great keyboard action and not much of the guitar in comparison to other Jani jobs, but of great quality, this is the first CD of Cain's Offering. // 9

Lyrics: Overall very good compositions of guitarist Jani Liimatainen and even better executed by Timo, as we know is a singer with a lot of ability to handle a range of high tones. Excellent vocals and harmonies, and perfect diction as is characteristic of Kotipelto. Lyrics from the heart of a poet as Thorn in my Side, Elegantly Broken or Into the Blue, just as examples. // 10

Overall Impression: Excellent work of the Finnish Cain's Offering, as expected, certainly a great examplary to have in your collection of CD's and more so if you are a fan of Stratovarius or Sonata Arctica. As the title of the album says, Gather the Faithful, surely, all who love the power metal will love this cd, with songs like Dawn of Solace, Stolen Waters or Morpheus In A Masquerade, is undoubtedly an unforgettable cd. // 10
