Are you serious? I loved the whole album.

Rating: 8 Great album. Typical Primordial jams. I feel like some tracks were stretched a bit too long, and the record didn't give me goosebumps like Gathering Wilderness or Nameless Dead. Good stuff regardless. Favorite song: Babel's Tower.

Actually I just finished listening to the album for the second time, my rating has been lowered 2 points.

Well, 8 is "very good", and it is. It doesnt compare to To The Nameless Dead, but it's as good as any other album of theirs, which are all a notch above the rest.

Rating: 8 Once again they haven't disappointed me. I suspected after To the Nameless Dead that the quality might drop a little, and I was right, but they're still making music that measures up to a very good standard and is still a cut above many. I might always wish for another The Gathering Wilderness or To the Nameless Dead, but as long as they stay around this benchmark I will at least be happy.

And that only because The Seed of Tyrants and The Alchemist's Head are terrible songs I think.

Funny, that's the one song I'm actually really digging lol.

  Well after some official pre album songs I did not gave high hopes, now I simply can not stop playing it, but after 4 times, still hard to judge , typical Primordial sound, same time some sonsg eh did some way experiment or go back to the roots, vocals was more growls .. anyway good album , gonna play it more

  First listening of the whole album : sounds like a 7 to me, with a boner for the first and the last track.

Rating: 8 A decent record, but an average one for Primordial. I had the impression that I have heard that a thousand times before.
Zaphod - 05.12.2014 at 12:55  
Rating: 8 I actually thought The Seed Of Tyrants was one of the highlights, along with the title track and Babel's Tower. Come The Flood and The Alchemist's Head are the weakest tracks for me.
The entire album is about on par with the previous one, maybe a bit better even.
M C Vice - 11.12.2014 at 08:37  
Rating: 7 Something missing on this one. It doesn't make me want to fight Italians like their others do. The last 2 songs are the highlights for me.
Anyone else think the title track sounds like viking metal (not lyrically, of course)?
