Message from the Dark was the second song the band released as a single. This one is very different to anything that the band has done so far. It’s longer, and features balladry parts, have has a much deeper feel to it. Like with Force of Metal the improvement in the group’s musicianship is noteworthy, but the stronger writing and lack of focus on cheesy lyrics is what really strikes me with this one. Some of the riffs have a doom feel to them and singer Anni De Vil switches to some death growls for some brief parts of the song. Guitarist Bitchie’s lead work is emotive and skilful, and another big plus for this track. I foresee this one as an overall highly of the forthcoming album.

(Originally written for Heavy Metal Haven as a bulk review for four singles, scored at 9.8/10)
