There's really not much to say about Voices of Destiny and the third album Crisis Cult. At least there's nothing new to say about the band, excepting the fact that they have a new female lead vocalist in Ada Flechtner from Coronatus. Essentially, Voices of Destiny is destined to repeat themselves.

They still sound generally epic and bombastic. And that's basically it. Same stuff. Different album. Another year. The highlight? At The Edge, where Flechtner duets with ex-Xandria vocalist Manuela Kraller, and there's NO death vocals. What's up with that? If you like the band, buy the album.
