level   (90/100)
초기 노르웨이의 차갑고 거친 비장한 기운을 온몸으로 느끼기에 전혀 부족함이 없다
level   (90/100)
초딩질의 드럼이 유톡 티는게 문제이지만 단점을 뛰어 넘을 멜로디가 강하게 살아 있는 멜심블 계의 유명한 음반인데 이것을 중학생이 맨들었다는게 연구대상될만한 문제작 ㅋㅋㅋ
level   (80/100)
음산함과 분위기가 살아있게 레코딩도 적절히 되어있고 멜로디도 빼놓지 않았다. 키보드 사운드 비중이 상대적으로 커서 정통블랙을 고수하시는 리스너들께서는 삼가하시길...

16살 때 만든 엄청난 퀄리티의 앨범..... 나가쉬의 능력이 빛을 발하던 시기였다.
level   (85/100)
90년대 노르웨이식 멜로딕 블랙메탈. 특유의 분위기 좋다.

이 1집을 이 프로젝트 밴드의 명반으로 뽑는 사람들이 많은데 사실 1집이나 2집이나 두 앨범다 명반의 대접을 받을 가치는 충분하다. 좀더 음산하고 심포닉한 '블랙'메탈의 사운드에 치중한 데뷔작. 당시 나가쉬의 나이가 몇살이었는지 아는사람? ㅎㅎㅎㅎ 이 앨범도 요샌 안
