2 stars A previously decent black metal band does the same as Bathory did on Hammerheart and goes epic.

Well, take away the vikings and add some tuned guitars and you get this epic black metal album. Or Experimental Post-Metal as some call it. The music has been softened here compared with Memoria Vetusta Part I. There are still plenty of Burzum/Mayhem references here. Blut Aus Nord has not done a Genesis and gone pop-rock.......... Thankfully ! But you find some Benedict monks like chants here and some melodic stuff. Unfortunate, the melodic stuff does not stack up. The quality is not there. So what we get is a half-baked piece of bread which may appeal to the fans of epic metal. Although, I seriously doubt it. I think this album is a step down in quality compared to the likes of Memoria Vetusta Part I and their other albums. This album is just an album which goes nowhere and nowhere fast. Back to the drawing board, guys.

2 stars (barely)
