Few since early Agalloch have written such a stunning soundtrack to your contemplation of the meaning of life, nature, and darkness. Atmospheric, folk-oriented black metal like this can be simultaneously beautiful and ominous. There are things on this earth that are very, very old.

Beware, this music will lead you directly to a life of solitude in the forest, living the bare and contented life of the hermit, brought to dwell on the mountainside. While the folk music is not outwardly dominant, the massive and crushing mood will have you feel the cool air on your cheeks and the icy stream running between your fingers as easily as if you were already outside, far from anyone but the tall trees.

...sound like a wind on a stormy night.

And reminds me of Thy Light - another good South American band.

Decent, if slightly uneventful and monotonous. Agalloch does a far better job at executing this style.

Favourite album of the year in its category. Perfect from every aspect.

And about people comparing it to agalloch, well, why don't you campare for example 1989's Death angel with slayer (a top band that year). Cannot put a good release in the same basket with a band that made this genre popular..

Well my friend Agalloch is all time best band in their genre. But I believe this album can be considered a very good start toward this road.

Why can't you compare the two? They're attempting the same thing

So, other parameters must be ignored? Are you considering this as a poor copy of Agalloch? When you make an overall valuation of an album in my opinion there are other facts that someone could also look for, such as the time been releases, the genre approach, the theme, the production, even the county meaning his available references and many more I am forgetting at the moment.
