I really can't understand why they re-recorded it. The guitars on the new version are terribly thin and even sound different on some songs, as if they changed the EQ settings between the songs. Sometimes you can hardly hear what they're playing. The original version had a much better sound, especially the guitars.
Anyway, great album!
Haha, this was one of the first black metal bands I got into a few years ago. Haven't heard this album in long, and I don't even like them anymore, but I used to love it. This album does have a couple of KILLER tracks, I'll admit it.
