I do not know why, but the sound reminds me of THE ALLEGIANCE! This Melodic Nordic Black Metal seems pretty familiar to me, very alert but unoriginal. Christoffer alongside Lars Jensen (MYRKGRAV) and other three colleagues present here thirty minutes of modest Black Metal with one exception: "The Beauty Of My Funeral"! This one is a beautifully enchanting track, where melody is enhanced on the background by the rapid rhythm generated by some cleverly used guitars. Lars's voice is pretty linear, yet aggressive, sometimes even violent. A trendy album, finely conceived, prepared and performed (it is still a debut), that does not impress but neither disappoints.
