I find that the track lengths really make the album drag and make it hard to distinguish one song from another. On my first listen I couldn't wait for the album to be over...

Great review by the way.... just read it a second time. While I disagree with the rating, you do make a very convincing argument for it. Like a couple others on here, I just feel that this is the first WITTR and one of the first BM albums I could really enjoy straight through, and it really left me with a sense of awe that BM rarely does. The track times are pretty lengthy, but I guess I'm a pretty slow-paced person. Either that or I'm ADD and every minute of the music is perpetually new to me.

By the way, did anyone else order one of their shirts for this release? My god... could they have used a darker ink on a black shirt... if it was partly cloudy out you probably wouldn't be able to see it at all.

I was wrong, they didn't try and do too much on here, rather they just changed too many things about their sound. However, venturing into straight up black metal was a mistake, even if it was so they could perform this live.

I think the biggest issue is trying to justify the track-times for relatively straight-forward black metal.


This.

this is finally starting to lose its hold on me.



I can't listen to this for more than 2 tracks now



The song lengths are too much for regular black metal. If they could have shrunk 2 tracks down to 7-9 minutes, and added one or two intro tracks, it would have flowed a lot better.



However, they insist on continuing their "4 10 minute songs" pattern for every album. Not like that is a bad thing. It just doesn't work for raw black metal of this type.

but it's hard to deny this would probably own live.

i dunno he just contacted labels or something. you don't really need to have much writing background to get promos, i've had one before simply because i said i would write a review for it and post it on sputnikmusic.

a name like the_wizard in itself conjures an image of authority and reviewership. labels will do anything to please him.

That's quite interesting Rasputin. I'd do that but I have no interest in speaking with labels/ or people in general.
