건조한듯 하면서 질척거리는 마지막 끝물 FWBM 밴드의 데뷔작. 요시기의 그리스 블랙메탈 밴드들의 투박한 맛도 있고, Obituary의 Cause Of Death와 비스무리한 느낌도 있고..좋긴 좋았다. 근데 그리 인상적이진 않았고 자주 듣진 않을 것 같은 앨범.

노르웨이쪽에서 우수수 나오기전에 스위스에서 톡 튀어나왔다. 보통 이 시기에 나온 앨범들이 쓰래쉬 성향을 아직 가지고있거나 어설픈데에 비해 이미 블랙메탈로써 높은 완성도를 가졌다. 몇몇 곡의 템포가 조금 더 빨랐으면 훨씬 진국이 나오지 않았을까 하는 아쉬움이 남는다.

90년에 이런작품이 나오다니...ㄷㄷ

흰 도화지에 찐득하고 새까만 액체를 잔뜩 뿌린 느낌. 간결하지만 사악함과 블랙스러움은 모두 갖춘듯. 왠지 모를 고풍스러움도?? 왜케 고급스럽게 느껴지지...

debut, často čerpajúci zo svojich vzorov

악마적인 느낌과 원초적인 맛도 강하고, 시기상으로 블랙메탈의 뼈대가 완성된지 얼마 안됀 시기에 이정도 퀄리티의 엘범이라니..놀랍다
