Well, I haven't heard a Dreamtale album since their 2003 sophomore album Ocean's Heart, which was a somnolent Power Metal album with a ridiculous fantasy concept and bad lyrics. The band has undergone almost a complete lineup change since then, so to be fair this is like a whole different band. Only their drummer and one guitar player remain from the 2003 lineup for this re-release of their originally self-released 2011 album Epsilon.

This is still pretty much the standard for generic Finnish Power Metal. They are a better band than they used to be, producing some genuinely catchy songs like "Angel of Light" and "Fly Away", but their sound is still entirely derivative of bands like Stratovarius. You get clean but undistinguished vocals, synth-heavy compositions, and entirely disposable songwriting that won't stick with you no matter how much you listen to it. Average.
