I've always tried to understand what is this band singing and what do they actually want to perform. If I never came to the point of understanding these aspects so far, do not imagine that after listening to this album there has been a change of view. A style hybrid, that's what we're dealing with, probably rooted in some kind of Black Metal, with modern influences, plenty of atmosphere, plus voices that seem to be changed in a way, meaning that along the aggressive lines now there are some normal, choral ones too, and also an abundant keyboard imitating oriental influences, with staccato rhythms reminding me of early SAMAEL, plus some scents of AMORPHIS. Otherwise, intricate Metal, complicated, saturated in bizarre effects, with its melodic parts broken apart by the Power riffs; there are also to be found some Core elements, quite destructive for this AJATTARA dimension.
