0.0 ramon. | February 26th 16

Superb pacing, brilliant song flow, near-perfect performances all round, great production.
Potential for a 5.0 by the end of the year. BIG potential for the coveted 4.2 or higher + 100 vote
classic status.

And it's free on Bandcamp? Oh get stuffed mate.

EDIT: The record is no longer free on either Hyperion's Bandcamp page, or their label's Bandcamp
page. They were allowing free downloads for promotional use the first few days the record aired,
so if you happened to grab one at the time, please consider throwing some money where it is
rightly deserved. This record is EASILY worth the price of admission, and the album art is
gorgeous to boot!

As far as Dissection worship goes, this is pretty damn spectacular. However, almost nothing here really grabs my attention. Melodic black metal doesn't really have that wow factor that other styles of the subgenre can exude, but thats only myself talking. For what it is and if you are a fan of the style, you are going to have one hell of a good time with this one.

Sounds pretty awesome. Technically this can be seen of course as Dissection and Sacramentum
worship, but they can be little more playful. This seems just a little more progressive or
even more melodic at some points. Songwriting is real solid and production top notch. Highly
recommended if you're looking some kickass melodic black/death.

Not bad, not bad at all. I can understand the hype.

2.5 averageSkyline28 | March 4th 16

Not quite sure I get the hype for this album. It has some excellent peaks (particularly in its
keyboard parts) and the guitar leads are top notch. As a whole though I find it difficult to
distinguish between songs and the best moments are bridged by what I find to be fairly standard
black metal fare. Also the vocals, while pretty decent are nothing special and become monotonous
for me around the halfway point. Perhaps this will grow on me given half a chance but can't really
see myself returning to this one much. If you follow this melodic black metal religiously though I
suspect you will find a lot to enjoy in this. Also 'Blood of the Ancients' is spectacular and
highlights for me how more varied vocals could potentially have transformed this album.
