it's not a question of whether it's a good track or not (i personally love it), but if it is a unique track in their discography, it is memorable (for the right or wrong reasons).

The synths and vocals are just way too good. Especially the synths. I'm a sucker for synth melodies. I know lots of Summoning has a lot of synth, but for some reason this whole album just sticks out as amazing to me.

Maybe it's for personal/nostalgic reasons, because this is the first Summoning album I heard and the first album that really got me into more atmospheric music and BM.

agreed. this one has their most unique atmosphere, and that's mostly down to the synths. the style is completely different (and darker) than the ones found on the other albums (which are all similar to each other).

Basarabian Hills is pretty good too, the logo is hilariously illegible (that's what initially drew me to listen to them), but it was surprisingly good. It's mostly ambient with some Black Metal bits thrown in. Also forgot Ancient Tundra, another great Ambient/Black Metal band.
