Borknagar began as an epic Norwegian black metal band. Borknagar's sound was very epic compared to most bands from that scene. They can be compared to ENSLAVED and WINDIR. But MAYHEM, BURZUM or DARKTHRONE clones, they were not. The sound is pretty good. Take some downtuned guitars and add some sound-effects type of keyboards. That's when you ends up with the likes of BORKNAGAR. Garm, the vocalist of ULVER, does the vocals here. The vocals is the typical black metal screams.

The music is not bad. The most annoying part of this album is these pointless instrumental pieces with keyboards or accoustic guitars which littered the black/death metal scene back in those days. They are like advertising slots in a televised motorrace. Utterly annoying and pointless. Besides of this, the black metal here is not bad. But this album is only for the fans of BORKNAGAR or die-hard black metal fans. A fairly decent debut album, in other words. But it is not prog.
