I have spent a lot of time with this one. When it was first released, it never left my stereo. So, not to jump the gun, but it's needless to say that I liked it. It wasn't ALL honeymoon, though. A lot of the listening hours were put in trying to get comfortable with it. I also knew lots of other Crypt-dwellers were struggling in their re-marital bliss. "Is it as badass as I want it to be?" we asked ourselves. I still remember the widespread uproar and gleaming hopes for this to be the ambrosial nugget of death metal majesty that would astound and amaze all that beheld it. Lord Worm was back, and many were relieved; yet, some (like me), were just glad it was a familiar front man, and that it was certain to be dark and insane for this. You see, I personally loved DiSalvo's percussive ogre-like grunts, as well as his provocatively psychological lyrics. I was never as angry at Worm's absence as most fans were. However, if there was to be another at the helm; I wouldn't have wanted it to be anyone but the maniacal intellectual that is Lord Worm.

Rating: 5 However hard I try with this album, I just can't rate it any higher. Lord Worm may be back on vocals but it doesn't really do much to improve the album's quality. I think my main quip with the album is that a lot of the songs to me seem largely unfocused and unmemorable. In particular I'd say that 'The curse of the great' and 'Angelskingarden' (which is way too long for its own good) are the worst examples of this. There are some great songs such as 'Adeste infidelis' and 'The pestilence that walketh in darkness', which I really amaze me with the instrumentation, but for the most part I just find myself bored with the album as a whole.

Rating: 8 I thought it was a good return to form, "in the kingdom where everything dies...." and "endless cemetery are good brutal yet catchy tunes. Lord Worms vocals are clearly not as good since the "cookie" monster vocals of none so vile. I do feel some parts didnt flow well together and would have been nice for some more chaotic soloing, but its a decent record.
