1. Beyond the Veil... The Making of "RIITIIR" (51:10)

According to Ivar Bjørnson, "RIITIIR" (occasionally typeset as "RIITIIЯ") is a "self-made "Norse-ified" version of the words "rites", "rituals". "RIITIIR" = "The Rites of Man", to put it in a formulaic and easy way".

정말 굉장한 앨범... 정말 유니크한 스타일이 소름돋게 만든다.. 호불호가 많이 갈릴 스타일이긴 하지만 개인적으로는 매우 좋았던 앨범.. 1,4번 추천

뭘 많이 하려고는 하는거 같은데 전혀 감흥이 없다.

이런게 대단한 작품으로 평가를 받고 있다면 다른 작품들을 좀 더 제대로 평가해야 할 필요가 있다.
