This one is not a full-length album from Dark Moor, which are very active since it's seems to me that they really albums quite often ;). So this EP contains 2 brand new songs. One which was a bonus track in the Korean release of The Hall Of The Olden Dreams album. The new one is called The Fall Of Melnibone. The rest of the album contains the Helloween cover Halloween that you could find on The Keepers Of Jericho tribute album, a song from the last full-length album (Silver Lake) and a song in Spanish that conclude the album.

For those of you reading Michael Moorcock, you will have noticed that the first song (who entitles the EP) is about the mighty emperor Elric and his demonic sword Stormbringer. A very long (10:31) and melodic True Metal hymn. The Wood Song is nice and a much better ballad than the one that was present on the previous album. The Halloween cover (also very long, more than 13 minutes) is pretty cool too especially if you've never heard the Helloween Tribute album.

A more than worthy EP for all fans while waiting for their next album, which I predict (and hope internally) will be another melodic bomb !
