2 Moment of Betrayal

I love this song its awesome - FerrariDude64

3 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

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.

Wow, this song perfectly closed off 130 minutes of ProgMetal mastery! Great guitar play and fantastic vocals! - CastlevaniaFanboy128

4 Ravenskill
5 Hymn of a Thousand Voices

This song turned the album into a much more hopeful tone! And it was perfect! - CastlevaniaFanboy128

6 The Gift of Music

The first single of the album! And basically it was the first song during the album, that sticked out! It's a great one! - CastlevaniaFanboy128

7 Our New World
8 Three Days


9 Dystopian Overture
10 The Path That Divides

The Contenders

11 A Life Left Behind
12 A Tempting Offer
13 Lord Nafaryus
14 Chosen
15 Act of Faythe

"I never knew they spent their days in rags, while I enjoy the life they'll never have."
I think a lot of people can relate to this song. - IronSabbathPriest
