I can't find anything wrong with this album. Every doom-laden riff is heavier than an elephant's ass (as Solitude Aeturnus's Rob Lowe once described Dio's Shame on the Night) and absolute headbanging material. Beautifully harmonized soloing without ever being flashy, and haunting (& vaguely AiC-ish) vocals. Or maybe it's the other way around, I'm no expert on chronology, just providing a point of reference here, y'know? Anyway, the drummer has some mean chops too, double bass and all which shine through occasionally without ever being overbearing, and, lest I should forget, the album has one of the greatest songs ever written-Wolf's Blood. Every single riff and solo and everything in this song is perfection, it rocks so hard it hurts. The album's lyrics even range from relevant issues of mortality to the obligatory mystique-shrouded verses about wolf's blood and all that fun stuff. If you have any interest in melancholic doom metal that isn't operatic and pretentious bullshit which is flooding shelves these days, you need to own this fucking album, enough said. Also recommended for fans of Victor Griffin's work with Place of Skulls.
