2 stars The debut album from this Austrian black metal band.

It is pretty obvious that Abigor had got some tapes of Burzum in the house. Obviously, they had even listened to them too. This album is pretty much influenced by Burzum. In particular, the vocals. The usual Venom references are also here. But mostly; Burzum. ..... And some Zeuhl references too. I guess the latter one by accident. The end result is grim, cold black metal.

Unfortunate; grim cold black metal without the qualities Burzum and the other great black metal bands from that time had in them. I have always regarded Abigor as a third rate black metal band and this album confirms my views. Some sound effects punctuates the music now and then. But wait....... Hang on a minute...... A song like the eight minutes long Kingdom of Darkness proves that there are light in the tunnel here. This is actually a pretty good song. Hopeless, Abigor was not on this album. But this album is still an album only for the diehard black metal fans. In ProgArchives, it is like a fish in the Sahara desert.

2 stars (being generous)
