Dark side of Amorphis and I enjoy it a lot! Recorded one year before debut LP, but released one year after, it shows the roots of this well known band. They lay deep in the underground death/doom territory, what reminds of another band with similar history, guess which one (its name also starts with letter A)... Amorphis stayed little more metal than Anathema anyway.
Most of the songs were re-recorded for Karelian Isthmus LP, but even these tracks sound more brutal and rough here. In fact, I like both records, Isthmus is better produced and more melodical, but this one will crush your skull.
