This is about the most blackened piece of music I've heard all year. It sometimes reminds me of early Candlemass and other times of very early MDB, but with a unique and original twist thanks to those well-orchestrated parts throughout. 'Malefica', 'A failed exorcism' and 'Ordeal' alone made me want to check these guys out more. The closer is a little underwhelming for me, but even then there's a sense of grandiosity and epic overtones.
Probably one of the most interesting black metal albums you could possibly listen to this
year. Despite its incredible length I was enjoying every minute of it. This album has heavy
amounts of doom metal riffs and the songs are filled with some amazing atmosphere. One track
in particular *Malefica* gives off this feeling that of your own inevitable demise.
Intense.If you have the patience for this, sit down and enjoy it!
