I feel that it is my duty to write a review for this album, because this is the album that pretty much got me into Black Metal. Also, I find Enslaved to be the band which managed to fuse Viking metal with Black metal in a very interesting, and 'different' way. First of all lyrically. How come? Well they are one of the rare bands who don't contradict themselves with being both pagan and satanic. They have also changed their style a lot during the years in a sense that they mixed a lot of progressive elements into their music, but they did that in a good way.

Don't go in expecting something similar to their contemporary style.

I've checked it out recently, and yeah, it is quite a bit of a different sound as Axioma Ethica Odini or Ruun but it seems to sound kick ass still to me

Rating: 8 I didn't actually expect much from enslaved's debut album, but it is in fact a great slice of atmospheric black metal, the word 'atmospheric' being expressed here. The album channels such a wondrous atmosphere through the various symphonic passages, and although it isn't quite as raw as you would expect a black metal album to be, it still holds the key ingredient to any extreme metal album:consistency. Each song has its own significance, and with the opening song we can see that the band tried hard to distance themselves from any other musical genre at that time. This is a great place to start if you're interested in listening to enslaved in the 90's.

Yeah, agree with that. 'Frost' is such a "chilling" record, but it works quite well.

Rating: 8 Wow, these are long ass songs. Repetitive, albeit interesting
