Comments

level   (70/100)
doom/death metal občasne spestrený o klávesy a husle, dlhé piesne, čiastočne monotónne. Pripomína mi to staré Paradise Lost
level   (90/100)
클래시컬함과 파괴적인 면모가 공존하는 훌륭한 둠/데스 앨범.
level   (92/100)
짝수번에는 밴드 특유의 비장하고 클래시컬한 둠 메탈 곡들을, 홀수번에는 비교적 빠른 템포의 사악한 데스/둠 메탈 곡들을 배치하여 마치 천사와 악마를 대비하는 듯한 느낌을 준다.
level   (82/100)
Very dark dirty and heavy album very good
