    One of the finest black metal records of all time. BaN's crowning achievement. And that's saying a lot.

    Dunno why it took me so long to figure this out. Great album that may even exceed The Work Which Transforms God.

    Quite possibly their best album, which makes me wonder how it´s less popular than the 777 trilogy.

    No, you´re not the only one. This is definitely in my top 10 black metal albums ever.

    This is why I find black metal fascinating. [3] It sounds a bit like Ultima Thulee Part 2, but in this case it's not a bad thing at all. It definitely features better guitarwork than their debut.

    Their best album next to Odinist, it's a real shame they don't release the lyrics with their other albums.
