Actually, I liked this EP a lot. I've been listening to black metal for many years and I can assure that it's not bad, REALLY. Maybe the music it's not that original... Some riffs are very similar to Darkthrone and generally the atmosphere makes you think at Those of The Unlight by Marduk, however there are some different and interesting elements. Riffs, even if not really original, are without any doubt catchy and the melodies are just great. I found great even the lyrical work (check out lyrics of Longing For The Dark Winterforest... just true black metal!) and the vocals of the leadvocalist satanachia are very rough and cruel... makes me think even to Marduk's singer in Those Of The Unlight! The production here is good, and I'm glad of it : not every band should have really rough production just like Darkthrone!

The songs, except for the stupid intro and the even more stupid outro (that's why I didn't give 100!!!), are all above average and good, and my personal favourite from this record it's the incredible night of satanachia! Just a great black metal song but I can't say why I like it better than the others because every song here is just kinda great...

I'm sorry that this band didn't continue its activity following this path, because I know that it would have made something really good... That's a pity!

Absolutely worth downloading... Look for the band's page on the internet, you'll find this album to download for free!

I'm going to be really straightforward with this review. If you like generic Mid-90s Black Metal this one will be right up you're alley. This is pretty lame. The production isn't that bad actually, maybe a notch or two below De Mysteriis Dom Sathanas. We have a pointless intro when is just plain retarded. A drumbeat that a 3 year old could pull off, and some random talking. This intro really sets up the album well. There's three actual songs, and well.....they're pretty much a watered down Darkthrone, with less riffs, no atmosphere, and better production. This is such an annoying album. Honestly that's all that can be said about this EP, it's pointless. Oh, and to top off these watered down Darkthrone wanna-be songs, we have an outro that matches the intro, except with an even more childish drumbeat. I can't believe I wasted my time downloading this. Stay away from this unless you like background music. It won't keep your attention for more than 5 seconds, and better yet, go get Under a Funeral Moon, which does this but so much better.
