The third album of these Blackers is the most elaborated one and of the finest quality in their entire history. Declared adepts of Mesopotamian/Sumerian Metal, the four musicians mix fast furious extreme Metal with some traditional elements. In better words, we have here some specific instruments, delicately used all along the album, which confer an Oriental appearance to the sound. If we don't take in consideration "The Arrival Ritual", which is rather an oriental experiment, we could say that the music is a first rate Black Metal, brutal but atmospheric as well. It is an elegant material, professionally conceived, and I rated it in consequence, especially since it features great injuries at the originality chapter! Well, this is what it happens to almost all Black Metal albums of today! For the execution: Irreproachable! I think I find interesting even the CELTIC FROST, Babylon Fell... cover version!
