Paul...this is outstanding...a wonderful piece . As someone who loves to learn of the ancient civilisations of planet earth, any music alluding to such is always a must to listen to. this song opens the doors of the imagination...a vision of the pharoah's journey to the tomb is very clear...A great adventure in music and imagination.- Gordon

well i'm all set for that eastern mode after reading the reviews.. a lovely atmospheric start and i love that long wammy ascending pitch..
i love these exotic modes with the minor 2nds in the "wrong" places lol.. you really extract the best melodic qualities from the material.. love the windows in the beat.. the breaks that highlight your awesome runs..
it's nice middle part with a very subdued beat and real nice acoustic chordings.. really sounds like phrygian mode paul.. or were you working out on some special egyptian mode?.. lovely shredding to end.. impressive piece with lots of regal grandeur and splendor in the broad scope of it..

Love the sound of the wind in the intro (blowing the sand across the desert and rustling the tents?) What a powerhouse of sound you`ve created here..Has a wonderful "arabian" flow to it..Guitar is fantastic to say the least and this really does conjour up some quite incredible visions in my mind...You have one gigantic piece of music here Paul...An excellent listen..:-)

Peace n love Mags :-)

Only 2 songs of your GREAT range here???!?!?!?
Well this is,awesome.
Simple as that.
It sets the stage right from the get go,and doesn't miss a trick
Being somewhat a lover of all things egyptian,you can well imagine how this fires my imagination.
Sueprb musicanship throughout.
Spellbinding lead work.
That rhythm.....sigh...
perfection,and then...
More lead,only this time blisteringly fast...
Then we hit the break,and that was just sheer magic.
I could have listened to that for easily twice as long,which is always the hallmark of something you are greatly enjoying.
The plunge back into power...........
Speed with taste and control...
Man you should have seen the head cinema rolling Paul,I did you proud.

Done in the tradition of great progrock Paul, and I'm definitely with you on that. Wonderful arrangement and build. Song is a delight from start to finish. Intelligent writing and delivery that meets and exceeds the lofty goals of the song. Awesome exhilarating piece to say the least....Blake
