5 stars Never will you find a better blend of spaced out ambience, pure dark weight, lush sweeping keys, and pure epic intensity than found in this album. Arcturus took the genre of Avantgarde metal the limit with this masterpiece of an album. Every aspect of it is composed and executed flawlessly, with masterful voacl performances by the mighty G, heavy and powerful guitar playing, tight, intense, and groove laden technical drumming by Hellhammer, and the nothing but peak quality compositional skills of Sverd. An essential of not only, avantgarde metal, progressive metal, or even metal in general, but of music itself.
