Staff review by

The peak of the 'sraditional? Black metal career of one of the most important and influential bands in the scene. In 1996 Satyr and Frost (helped for the guitars by Fenriz) released a concentrate of BM ideals, music and feelings.

?This is armaggeddon? Satyr scream at the beginning of the album. And his musical armaggedon is made by a tight, complex and melodic riffing, trademark of the band. Not ?pure? BM, not only full throttle madness, continuos blast beats and a dirt production but an intricated songwrting that privileges the time changing rather than the monotonous repetition of only one (Burzum-like) oppressive riff. In some parts, sudden changes of time let us hear a ?folk? melody, or a piano, or a xylophone.

  This album is their best. I don't think they can top it.

  A great Black Metal album. Unfortunately, the last good Satyricon album because after that they turned to shit. Imagine what they could have done if they kept their focus...

Rating: 9 They changed their focus. Are you a musician RavenKing?

Rating: 10 This album has some of the best black metal riffs ever, surpassed only by Mercyful fate and bathory in my opinion\m/
