Cosmological Black Metal? Imposing title, but in reality there is nothing special. We are dealing with a simple Black Metal, trying to copy the Norwegian sound (KHOLD for example), but they inserted, in order to personalize it, some very melodious fragments, even Progressive elements, guitar solos, rhythm turnovers...

The tracks where normal voices are used seem quite interesting, especially for the fact that backing vocals are also included, shaping a somehow original, but less successful approach. This sound hasn't impress me and, unfortunately, I didn't get the chance to listen to GORATH's first album, "Elite", in order to make a comparison.
