근 10년전, 이 밴드를 처음 접했을땐 이게 음악인가, 불쾌하다 등의 느낌이었다. 지금도 이 앨범은 명반이다 라는 생각은 여전히 안 들지만 청자를 잠식하는듯한 그 분위기 형성에는 찬사를 보내는 바이다.

A Drone Metal masterpiece. There are droning, ridiculously heavy brain numbing tunes atop another atop another, and it's like getting your brain mashed. Amazing.

jedna dobrá pieseň nezachráni totálne slabé album - to isté ako u predošlých - bieda!
