Review by Shaytan on April 27, 2014.

This album just caught me off guard. I recommend this album in its entirety. The album begins as if was a soundtrack album for a horror movie with “Von Rov Shelter”. With an immediate launch into a very distorted black metal sound with “Drako Gigante”. The music just causes mad hysteria and a feeling of haze at the onset. Without being able to distinguish how it should be defined. The first thoughts that appear to my mind are loss of mind. The vocals are equally well blended and suited just taunting away from the delirium it caused. Although I praise this album entirely, I give special significance to “Klokker Tramp”. This track was by far my favorite track on this album. Reminding me of my favorite bands Virgin Black and Elend. The horror and epic nature of this track would make this suitable for a theatrical work – since it spurs such imagination. Going through many episodes within the track to my shock I heard almost like a symphony in the midst of the confusion of their black metal arrangement which could easily be termed avantgarde. This black metal album is a masterpiece. Be prepared to be lead into a frenzy.
