Production on this record seems a little "punchier" than on the previous Graveworm albums, but the musicianship and songwriting isn't any better. I think the only real change is that the band decided to go for lengthier songs surrounded by one or two minute-long instrumentals to fill the time. However, there is a song that really stands out to me: "Threnody", which actually caught me by surprise. What I was expecting was completely different to what I heard. Three minutes of light acoustic melancholy followed by a heavier rhythm section, but which details some truly explosive, melancholic solo work. Because of this the song stands out from the rest of the album, though other highlights can be found in "Unhallowed by the Infernal One" and the excellent Maiden cover.

Does anyone know the lyrics of Ars Diaboli?
I've been searching for more info about this 'Gregorian Chant'
But nothing yet.
It would be great to know what this song is about.

Love the cover version of Fear Of the Dark. Especially the intro.
"Another day, another Doug."
"I'll fight you on one condition. That you lower your nipples."
