Awaiting all purist black metal fans to start complaining...

The Hellenic Metal Hammer rated this as a 5/10. The editor claims that the songwriting is weak due to the extensive touring of the band.

I trust more though what this site and its members have to say.

Assassins was huge, in terms of both lyrics and music.

This must be good too.

LOL I know how this is going to go. Everyone who says something bad about this band or any of their albums is going to get called a purist.

I don't think there is really anything eccentric about this album. It's just boring and pretentious. A failed experiment because it just sounds too forced and awkward.

I don't know about Crysis but I'm perfectly happy without the tag. It doesn't really signify anything anyways (might be naive to the special privileges that come with the status though).


This.

Instinct:Decay is the only thing I really like from this band, but I may give this album a shot. Ace review as usual Karl.

I am actually surprised to see more Assassins supporters out there because I thought I was the only one. I can't wait to listen to this, I like a band that isn't afraid to step out of the boundaries and blend styles. Plus, the psychedelia aspect always tickles my starfish. Nice review, Wizard.

Humility's a rarity on the web these days, nice to know a few people out there are still very capable of it.

Thanks man, I really enjoy the company of my fellow metalheads on this site tbqh.

I was only kidding, I just remember Coke writing such a neg review for Assassins and I truly think it made a lot of haters on this site, you know how Staff reviews role (not that there was a problem with it, everyone is entitled to their own opinion). I just needed to even the playing field.

Careful cause it ain't raw as fuck! hahahaha

If you didn't like Assassins, you will not like this.

How many more pure black metal albums does a man have in him before he wants to walk away for a bit? Even the main guy from Beherit went all darkwave for A LONG TIME. The change makes all the sense in the world.

Dont base your critique upon your expectations of what you think the artist should have done, but what they actually did.

I think its great if someone doesnt like this album because they hate darkwave anyways, but not because they wanted black metal instead. That's just silliness.

Nachtmystium has plenty of black metal material to go through. I think B. Judd wants to make music that gets burrowed into peoples heads now. Not a bad pursuit if it doesnt suck, and Im hearing a severe lack of falsity and an abundance of reverence for music that meant something to someone deeply. That is the difference between class and something that sounds like unwashed ass (in a bad way) and prefabricated market research pap.

Try just the ears, and not the prejudices.

I think alot more people like this than you lead on. However, this is certainly respectable and should pertain to a number of bands trying to push the envelope instead of doing the bare minimum.

This. It ain't bad at all. Black'n'Roll is always fun to listen to. It isn't the greatest thing I've ever heard, but I like the combination of rock riffing and beats with black metal harshness. It's weird an eccentric, maybe even pretentious, but it still ain't bad.
