Extremly overlooked, and way better than the average score! Except of the title track, you can find great songs from different albums presenting some of the best songs from the band's discography. And 'Mother North' performed with a backup orchestra is unbeliveably amazing - best version EVER.

surprisingly-not-bad, considering their last few releases. by no means is it a return to the band's first three albums; all the same, it does display a new balance between the old sound and the new sound. the EP is still very much in the black'n'roll subgenre, don't get me wrong. however, it is much darker and more atmospheric than Now, Diabolical and Volcano. it's a bit more varied; a couple of the songs display a strong doom metal element, maybe even sludge. it's a very odd EP, and even though it can squarely be placed into the category of "new Satyricon," it certainly has its own unique flavor when compared to their last three albums.
now, perhaps this was conscious on their part, perhaps not - but either way, they've illustrated this sense of uniqueness very well with the song "Existential Fear - Questions". i doubt many fans will like it, but i do and for one reason alone: it's fucking bizarre. it doesn't sound like Satyricon at all. it almost sounds like Sabbath with (more) drugs and (more) emotional issues. presumably, it represents a new focus; if so, it's one that, i think, is very interesting
p.s. it turns out that "Repined Bastard Nation" would be a helluva lot of fun to hear live. and if you thought "Mother North" was good before, you HAVE to hear it with a backup orchestra
