I love this song its awesome - FerrariDude64

3 Ravenskill Ravenskill
4 Astonishing

Very nice outro song with some of LaBrie's best vocals. Although I'm kinda sad this song isn't 10+ minutes. Like on the last album with Illumination Theory. - IronSabbathPriest

Me too, I really wanted an epic, Illumination Theory is easily my favorite song from 2013. - CostcoHotDogs

I was pretty disappointed that this album doesn't have any particular epic, but I'd say of the songs from this album, this is one of the best.
