From, the ultimate progressive rock music website

3 stars "Eld" might be most interesting album for the progressive minds out of the first three albums mainly due to the non- typical epic first 16-minute long track that is far from typical black metal.

"793 (Slaget Om Lindisfarne) / 793 (The Battle Of Lindisfarne)" is an astonishing and ambitious epic track with tons of elaborate keyboards (for black metal), changes in the mood.

Having set the expectations and spirits high, the remainder of the album is more or less black-metal oriented and not as memorable as the previous 2 albums. There are less intense parts with keyboards, acoustic guitars but not standing out. A 4 star first song but 2-3 star next songs.
