Something is said to be transcendent when it exceeds the ordinary and even the best, yet this form of transcendence is a perverted caricature. Man no longer knows where his place in the universe is; his existence is no longer derived from something higher than himself. More specifically, what is greater than him today is but a machine that crushes, dissects, exploits and uses him, thus making a production tool out of him. Man is looked upon from a mechanical point of view: brain, neurons, hormones, genes, and a body devoid of breath and energy. Considered as such, Man lost any reason to exist; suicides are increasing in all environments. Human life no longer has value.
Philosophical questions – Who am I? Where am I? Where am I going? – are shunned questions today; questions considered no longer valid, which make us smile and do not deserve attention. In a world where time is money, asking such questions is a waste of time.

Kontinual, editor of the Dark Legions Archive
"In underground metal, there is a youthful coalescence of seemingly disparate ideas, a syncretism. These are rooted in themes of heroism, warfare, death, the beyond, history, endtimes -- indulgent glimpses into worlds beyond the individual and the dreary present, and far from merely temporal or personal concerns. The approach is boundless and powerful, and the music matches."
