3 stars This is one of the best ever Swedish death metal albums.

Although not a prog rock album, the album takes a lot of inspirations from the likes of Rush, King Crimson, Yes and Genesis. This in addition to the likes of Entombed, Dismember, Grave, Pestilence, Obituary and Death. The result is a surprisingly good marriage between, I almost said, heaven & hell. The seven minutes long Enigma clearly has a prog rock structure. It is an excellent song too where it flexes it's muscles between death metal and more melodic metal. The rest of the album is not that good. But this is a very good prog rock influenced death metal album. The tempo is more doom metal on the rest of the album and the death growls may put most people off. This album was a landmark when it was released and I was one of them who were won over. I still am, although both I and the band has developed our musical tastes. It is one of the best melodic death metal albums out there.
