However, this release is still pretty cool it's entirety. I enjoyed the production quality, the guitar riffs and the production sound. Again it's slow but definitely worth checking out. It wasn't one that is overtly aggressive, it's tantamount is truly admirable and not really any splint of diversity. I think that Khold's intentions here is to demonstrate the true potential of the band, but for me, I wish that it was written in English. That being said, it still has qualities that reflect talent and creativity. It's well warranted that one should give it a try. I wouldn't buy into any negative ratings, but it is just average.
One album to chill to on a wintry day, wishing that some of which dismay brings one to this reaping release quieting discontent. The music here in its' entirety is a mixture of tremolo picking of chords and some segues into a more tranquil sound. All and all, it's quite morbid, but palitable. An album that points the direction to the utterly spellbinding raw appeal and darkness enthroned. No blast beats whatsoever, it's mostly featured with mild guitar riffs with distortion and the mixing quality was to a point to where you can hear the riffs clearly plus the vocals don't overshadow the guitars or drowned them out.
Everything such as mixing quality is well done here and I think it's not an album that'll put you to sleep, it's one that musically it implies creativity and imaginary stints of havoc bleeding in utter darkness. I do think that since the band is currently active according to records, they'll make more albums that progress from this. But yes, average is what I ultimately think that it is. So don't expect anything extreme here. This is an album that is true Norwegian black metal, just a little more raw and rears it's ugly head to listeners putting you in sort of a trance with musical trauma.
Overall, I give this one a "C" because there could've been more creativity bestowed here, even though I think it's well played out. It's not like early Darkthrone albums, it's a black metal album that's totally dark, but a production quality that emits force plus does justice in hearing everything clearly muscally and vocally speaking. Yes, 10 years old since it's original recording, maybe a little more, but one to pull out when you feel like hearing some raw black metal that's played in such a way that it'll truly move you in it's morbidity. There are actually 2 drawbacks that are blatantly obvious here: the fact that it's not in English and the riff quality could've been a bit more creative. Pick it up if you're looking for darkness visible.
