4 stars Being a fan of many genres certainly helps this album become more palatable. Spanning from Death/Black metal passages to operatic moments and (surprisingly)quite a bit of classic heavy metal instrumentations, this album is a solid first release. It is important to state that i do not think this album stands up to Emperor's final release "Prometheus -The Discipline of Fire and Demise," but at the same time, it contains more alternation between heavy and soft, which at times on Prometheus could give a headache in the wrong mood. Overall, reccomended to give a listen, at first I thought this album wasnt going to offer much, but I was pleasantly surprised.
Quietus | 4/5 |
