Comments

level   (85/100)
강력하게 달려줘서 마음에 든다.
level   (85/100)
심포닉 블랙에 데스코어를 짬뽕시켜서 이상할 것 같지만 의외로 잘 어울린다.
level   (85/100)
멜로딕하면서 테크니컬한 블랙메탈 사운드에 중점을 맞췄지만 쓸데없는 브레이크다운이 감점 요소
level   (76/100)
코어적인 느낌이 그닥 마음에 들진 않는다. 보컬도 마찬가지.
level   (80/100)
여러장르의 장점들을 잘 취합시킨 수작. 블랙메탈 사운드에 기초하면서도 적당히 테크니컬한 연주.
level   (85/100)
매우 맘에 드는 앨범. 무엇보다도 몰아치면서도 완급조절을 하는 사운드가 마음에 든다.
level   (88/100)
Ovo je klasican simfonicni BM album i najbolji BM album made in USA. Svaka im cast.
