This is where viking begins. It is mix between HM and power doom as Memory Garden and Grand Magus
Its heavy, its slow. There are no rawness and speed. Its calm. I like it best songs
Dragons Of The Nord and Ballad Of The Swords

Here's my comment: I don't like this album at all.
Bought this many moons ago because I kinda enjoyed Blot ("Ironbound" is such a great track), but somehow missed out on their earlier albums.

This is so much worse in direct comparison with Blot that it almost hurts.
No, wait, pain is a feeling, so "it hurts" cannot be the right expression. Because this invokes no emotions at all, unless boredom was an emotion. It's just there and totally forgettable while doing so. 48 minutes, painfully stuffed with the exact opposite of catchiness and excitement.

Somehow relieved to see that the average MS rating reflects the bitter truth, at least partly.
7.7/10 seems to be pretty high, but it's a rather low score for MS standards, and the difference to the current rating of Blot is evident and more than justified.

For 96 its still good one. But I heard better. It's like grand magus later turs better. It was a while I listened this band

Nah, I disagree. What's different between now and then? Didn't people back then already know how to write catchy songs and memorable riffs?

I'd state the opposite, it was even easier in the 90s to write good songs. Because the music world was wide open and the "heard all, seen all, done to death, meh" mentality wasn't even a thing yet.
Whatever these guys were up to in 1996, they didn't have to compete with the entire global music scene and with one-man bedroom bands in each and every corner of the world. Just them, their instruments, their ideas and visions, and support from the potent label Napalm Records.

I fail to understand how that could have been an unfavorable starting point.

I agree whit your point thats why that was good album then, now I think it would be failure.

Where do I have to search so that I may understand the meaning of your conclusion?
I never said that, but just the opposite. And it is what it is, not what it may have been.

In any case, I maintain that this is not a good album, neither now, nor in 1996, nor in a parallel universe.

Let's leave it at that. You know I'm old, I may die alone in a wheelchair listening to the twelfth incarnation of Rhapsody Of Fire before I have explored each and every facet of your mindset.

Please respect the old man and his nerves. I am really afraid that he is never going to contribute any negative comment to this site ever again.
