This band is one of my favorite and, in my opinion, their debut "...Again Shall Be" most certainly is the most representative one for Nordic Black metal scene. HADES style (the former name) bears a resemblance to BATHORY ...but the aggressiveness of voices and guitars has here a melancholic shape while the entire rhythm is rather slow yet on the extremely fast background created by the drums! in order to get a clear idea of how the new album sounds I need comparing with the first ones: HADES ALMIGHTY has no longer the strength they once had but what we can listen now overpass by far "Millennium Nocturne" state. So we might even appreciate it as a very good album. HADES ALMIGHTY and then AETERNUS started on the same line but the last one had become much more famous, probably also because of great luck. For me, "...again shall be..." definitely remains a masterpiece and the last material could only reach the consideration of being a successful echo of those past days!
