3 stars Abigor split up for a while after some pretty mediocre black metal albums. They used the time off wisely, in my view. What we have here is a much more intelligent version of hell.

Abigor choose some of the path Mayhem chose with their last two albums. The industrial approach with a lot of electronica and German heavy metal. Gorguts from Canada is also a good reference here. This has made this album a very varied and intelligent affair. You can actually sense Abigor has actually written some songs here instead of just working on riffs. The songs....... ehh, make that compositions is on average over five minutes long.

You still get the black metal vocals here and some black metal riffs. But the guitars are more distorted and pretty similar to what Pestilence once did on their Testimony album. I would call this album a post-black metal album. I am still not in awe of this material and I am far from being in awe of Abigor. But they have actually come up with a good album and that is to be applauded. This is a good effort, well worth checking out.
