Shadows of Past Comments

level   (50/100)
고딩들의 순수함이 뭍어나는 데스메탈. 성숙해진 이후의 앨범부터 들을만 하다.
level   (95/100)
볼트 쓰로워 처럼 육중하고 빠르게 몰아부친다. 거기다 그 속에서 에픽함을 유지하는 사기적인 걸작... 물론 마지막 트랙 내려오는 죽음의 장막이 최고다.
level   (70/100)
좋은지를 모르겠다. 아마 내 귀가 썩어서 그런 것일 수도.....
level   (90/100)
kvalitný death s hrubým chraplákom - jedna z mojich prvých kaziet :)
level   (92/100)
느리면서 육중하고 둔탁하고 멜로디컬하고...무엇보다도 귀에 쏙쏙 들어오는 최강의 데스메탈!
