"I bought this cd few months after its release. I knew three things about it.First: members from abruptum/marduk (though i didn't like these bands much, i took that as a "quality insurance" because i respect their work)
Second:slow atmospheric doom/black metal, and Third: i read somewhere "in the style of Katatonia" (they hadn't released brave murder day yet).This one was the description i waited for!I bought the cd without second thought.That was it...i made many attempts to listen to the whole cd but in vain...it was just unbearable. Indeed slow doom/black metal, but the most atonal and uninteresting riffs, mediocre vocals and as for the atmosphere i "found" it only in the poetic titles and the well-looked-after artwork and cd cover. A true dissapointment."

"So begins the majestic intro to a great Black Metal CD. This band includes It from Abruptum, and Pre-Marduk Legion.(Marduk fans, this is NOTHING like Marduk, it is slow, Atmospheric, beautiful, with no brutality whatsoever.) Yet this is what makes the cd so great. I listen to this whenever i want to relax and just be by myself ,alone, in a world of imagination. Fans of Opeth, Dimmu Borgir, Fatal Embrace, and Naglfar will like this cd. This is also a great introduction to the Swedish B.M. scene. So if you are a B.M. fan, you should own this."
