발매년도 94년. 이런 훌륭한 앨범을 접할때마다 그동안 블랙메탈 헛들었단 생각이 든다. 고퀄의 음악성에도 불구하고 딱히 인지도가 없는것이 가슴 아프고, 이 앨범을 안 지 얼마 안되었다는 것에 또 한번 가슴이 아프다.

Ancient, flame spittingly good Melodic Black Metal. Impressive for a two piece band.

'멜로딕 블랙'이란 무엇인가에 대한 모범 답안.

90년대 노르웨지언 블랙메탈중에서 유독 이 밴드만 주목을 못 받는 것 같다. 비슷한 스타일의 Dimmu Borgir 1집보다 세련되고 다양한 사운드를 들려준다. 6번트랙은 어디서 많이 듣던 사운드였다했더니.. Forgotten Tomb 1집에서 듣던 리프 ㄷㄷ

ešte to stále nie je ono, ale album obsahuje pár dobrých momentov
