This is a phenomenal record!!! My only regret is that there aren't more black metal albums like this that are more accessible. Black metal itself is a rather conservative sub-genre of metal, and I don't care for the raw sound. But this album has gotten me off more times than I can count. The same goes for Arbor, which is also in my possession. What a superb album! I look forward to more releases from Aquilus, no doubt with bated breath.
