Symphonic Black Metal still is a style that requires and compels high respect. Well, if the band is a Nordic one, any opinion tends to attain a certain touch of adulation. These Norwegians, surprisingly, seem to be very serious having performed 12 various complex dynamic tracks very excellently executed. In other words, there is Black Metal in abundance and the oscillation of melodic and aggressive parts simply is a real great relish just like the vocals' alternation. In the light of what I've said, I guess we can listen to Epic, Progressive, Power, Atmospheric, and Heavy Metal with some classical influences. Everything comes in a bombastic entertaining full of multiple effects manner with an explosive synth much rhythm and melody. I could even say it is like passing through various albums of bands like: LIMBONIC ART, DIMMU BORGIR, SIRIUS or THE KOVENANT. I really enjoyed listening to the album and I appreciate the skilfulness of these young musicians who firstly joined together seven years ago under MORRHEIM banner. Well, I find disappointing, once again, the lack of originality and have not a proper personal sound. Anyway this is a debut almost successful!
