Definitely one of the more unique and gloomy albums to come out of the old school Swedish death metal scene.

Amazing, top tier Old School Swedish Death Metal. Classic.

This is probably among my favorite 90's death metal albums. Not a "greatest of all time" worthy album to me, but it's definitely a damn fantastic record.

Word. One of the most underrated gems in early death metal, and definitely one of my favorites.

The music quality is average, the cover art is awful. One of the very overrated pioneer death metal bands.

The music quality is great, the cover art is great. One of the very overlooked pioneers of Swedish death metal.

I discovered this album last year, have you ever thought "damn, Why I haven't listened to this before?!"
As Old-School as... well, something very Old-School hahaha.

Just listened to this again just now...sorry, I have to bring it down 1 more point (from 5 to 4)
The more I listened the harder for me to like it.

I have to agree on that it's nothing new but it's really well executed.
