This album is a musical contribution to the black metal scene with its own sound.
You can hear and feel that there has been no fears for experimenting in the sound and no withdrawal for being creative to make a genuinely good album.
The musical tempo varies alot but the slower parts tends to be dominant and that's one of the big strengths of the album.
To dare to play high quality slow and mid-paced intriguing metal requires experience and knowledge, which the Svartelder members sure has.
Favorite track: Stygian Macrocosmos Pt. II.
