Wrath of the Tyrant Comments

level 9   (100/100)
심포닉이 빠진 원초적인 엠퍼러의 사운드를 들려준다
level 10   (85/100)
엘범커버보고 엠퍼러를 몰랐을땐 개그작품인가 했는데 내용물은 수준급
level 16   (90/100)
첫 데모앨범 치곤 수준급의 블랙메탈이다. 마치 LLN을 연상케하는 Raw한 사운드가 매력적인데 키보드를 쓰지않고 이렇게만 나아갔으면 어땠을까하는 생각을 해본다.그럼 물론 1집의 영광은 없었을테지만...상당히 이 앨범을 흡족하게 들은 터였다.
level 10   (90/100)
노르웨이 중딩 클라스... 참 기가막힐 노릇이다. 조악한 음질이 아쉬울뿐
level 17   (50/100)
klasické priemerné a nie moc kvalitné demo, ale je na ňom už pár zaujímavých náznakov
