A follow-up to their highly successful 2012 debut, “The Blackened Heart” sees the band becoming even more tight, solid and explosive! With a superb production by Vagelis Maranis of Maranis Studios in Backnang, Germany this album simply begs the question “Are you HARD enough to start a RIOT?!”
The CD version of “The Blackened Heart” includes a bonus track, featuring guest vocals by Richard Sjunnesson of THE UNGUIDED.

The RingMaster Review (8/10)

An absolutely beautiful composition through and through. The riffs and melodies are so tight and well crafted, with soaring lyrics that pull the whole story together. When I first heard Across the Ancient Dessert, I stopped what I was doing and my heart skipped a beat. I think it encapsulated every emotion I had reading the Chain of Dogs for the first time. That series means something special to me. I was already loving the album, and this song sold me immediately. This is really worth a listen. kapman
