3 stars The fifth album by these masters of epic black metal.

Hidden behind one of the better cover art-work I have ever seen on a black metal album, this band from Ukraine still walks down the path laid down on the previous albums. That means a healthy dosage of the Bathory and the Enslaved sound (both mid 1990s and their more recent sound). But Drudkh blends in their own identity and the music from their country into this mix. Add some Richard Wagner Sr too and you get this album.

To brand the music heavy is an understatement. The songs are epic and draped in heavy guitars. A mix of tremelo picking and just heavy guitars is what makes this sound. Then you have the black metal vocals on the top too and you get a wall of sound.

Quality wise, the music is good throughout. It is a bit too one dimensional for my liking though so I am not that overawed by this album. But it is still a good black metal album and that's it, really.

3 stars
