"This album should appeal to every blackmetal fan everywhere. I don't care what others say, this is far more brilliant than "Goat Horns". In fact, this album is one of the best in my collection. The sound is absolutely brutal, and there is a feeling of pure darkness throughout the whole recording. The guitars buzz like saws, and the drums pound into your chest like hammers. In my opinion, Munruthel (drums) is a force to be reckoned with, him being one of my top choices for drummers in the scene. Knjaz Varggoth (guitar, vocals) is a genius when it comes to songwriting, and his vocals are painful, sometimes reminding me of Shagrath of Dimmu Borgir. There is even some use of a tambourine in "On the Moonlight Path", which actually gives the song some character. The sleeve layout is very professional, and shows what looks to be paintings of the six corpsepainted figures. Underneath the actual CD, you will find a painting of Varggoth himself in the forest holding an axe, which adds a nice touch to the whole atmosphere. This album is pure evil, go out and buy it...now."

"this is NOT like their last album. fast, brutal. guitars up front, 2 keyboards are in the background. kinda leans in the direction of emperor. initially it is hard to understand what is going on, but with every liten the brilliance of this work slowly reveals itself."

"I don't know Goat Horns, but I think it's a well-done album. Not very original; they play the same music as Limbonic Art (or Dimmu, but faster). What I like is the slavian musical effects sometimes. The sound could be better, but enjoyable. It's nice to hear it, however nothing special or very orgiginal. The best tracks are: On The Moonlight Path, and Under the Banners of Horned Knjaz."
