빛이 라고는 찾아볼수없는 스산한 동굴속을 나홀로 걸어걸어~ 포스 작렬!!이 맛으로 메탈 듣는다!!!

This album's amazing! To fully feel and enjoy this album you should blank out your mind, sit alone in a quiet place, put this album on and just shut up and listen. Only after you pay full attention can you understand what the album offers you.

보통 둠메탈하면 난이도라던가 진입장벽이 높게 느껴졌는데 요 앨범은 예외인듯 하다. 충분히 잘 즐겼다.

어느 메탈앨범과도 다른 스산함과 신선함을 느낄 수 있어 좋았다.

둠메탈을 좋아하지 않아도 듣기에 거북하지 않을 듯하다.

들을땐 괜찮은데 듣고 나면 찝찝하다.

možno si to musím ešte viac krát vypočuť a zmením názor, ale na Celtic Frost to proste nemá. Nie je to zlé, ale ani z toho nespadnem na zadok

만족스러운 둠데스메탈. 초보자들에게도 권장한다.
