dark perfection yet again - 99%

crazpete, March 27th, 2004

Abigor craft yet more songs of thier oftten-influential brand of complicated layered buzzing organic black metal. This release feature less keyboards than some of thier other albums (Opus IV, Nachthymen, Orkblut) but stays in a dark and majestic realm of layered melody all the same as Darkthrone-style riffs permutate and reorganize themselves amid this band's organic and at times comfusingly advanced song structure and musical aesthetic.

The vocals here are a bit more 'true' than some other releases of thiers, drawing comparisons to Atilla of Mayhem fame.

Overall, this is yet another amazing release from the middle of the career of an amazingly talented band.
