5 stars I could write enough to fill out an entire page of your browser, but I am lazy and I'm sure you have better things to do. Fans and the tolerant of Death Metal elements cannot go another moment without hearing this unique, amazingly well executed album. It's a very organic feeling album which revolves around the subject of nature, renewal and all that other enviro-hippie crap. All kidding aside, this organic sound lends itself very well to a genre which sees more than its fair share of clinical, soulless affairs. Technically speaking, the guitars and arrangements are solid, if not spectacular; but where there is noticeable technical proficiency is with the drums. Speed for speed he's faster than the "enfent terrible" of metal drumming, Flo Mounier and his creativity behind the kit puts the aforementioned Cryptopsy drummer to shame. I'm not even overexaggerating...I wish I were.

If you like your beautiful breakdowns with your headbanging, look no further than this essential, underrated gem and give it its fair chance. You won't regret it. One of the best metal albums ever.

Abbath | 5/5 |
