5 stars It's true that this first release from Enslaved, the now Extreme Progressive Metal band is not very progressive at all. You only get a few hints of what's to come from the acoustic passages and keyboards in between the tremolo-picked black metal riffs. It does get repetitive at times, but that's one of the traits of the early black metal scene. The vocals are screamed and there are no clean vocals like their later releases, but this early and sometimes raw release is still one of my all time favorite albums for its excellent dark atmosphere and hidden melodies. I am aware that not many people will be able to enjoy this, but for me it's undeniably an absolute classic.
