Agathon hasn't grown up, despite of over 20 years of music activity! The Horror Black Metal developed by him goes back to the roots in this album, letting the atmospheric sequences for other musicians! More violent and linear than the previous album, with Trash Metal tendences, with violent voice, riffs of gloomy guitars, an unique keyoard but which is now pale, the Finn hasn't come with anything new, even with the incontestable oldness which he has in this scene... Too bad for the lack of inspiration, surprisely the band still exists. But I doubt it will resist if it continues to create fade, modest sequences, in which only the Horror side gives a soberness and originality to this sound (see the intro "Corpse Of Doom"). And even the cover of the album denotes superficiality, maybe even an infantile Metal...
