On March 9, the band announced on their web site, that for the first time in their band history, the album would contain guest performances by friends of the band.[5] This includes co-lead vocals by Doro on "Victoria" and co-lead guitar by Tobias Exxel of Edguy on the song "Higher".[6]

Metal Hammer (Germany) 4/7[7]
Sonic Seducer favourable[6]

All Beauty Must Die peaked at position 24 in the German album charts.[8]

A review by the German Sonic Seducer magazine lauded the album's mix of fast uptempo tracks and slow "atmospheric" pieces as well as the guitar riffs.[6] Also Metal Hammer was positive about the dynamics and the quality of the riffs but criticised the contrast between singer Cho's bright voice and the deep guitar sound.[7]
