Although there were many line-up modifications, The German sextet had arrived at their third album and did a very good job in consolidating their position in Germany. Throughout these new tracks, MEPHISTOPHELESS acctually returns to a less atmospheric style as aggressiveness and fastness are now their strong points. from another point of view, we are witnesses to a Black Metal relatively brutal with plenty of Death and Thrash Metal parts, a pale keyboard, demonic voices and choirs so that everything seems to be a be in command of chaos. I have heard that the album received quite high references and I still stand and simply wonder "why, what for?". Just for a good interpretation, without any shade of originality or fresh elements? It is strange..., well I wasn't awestruck by this album. Finally... it must be mentioned that the CD contains a modest video-clip captured and recorded during Wave Gothic Tour din August 2000.
