Staff review by
It would be safe to say that Moonlight Sorcery's inaugural full-length was one of the most anticipated debuts to hit the black metal scene of late. What's not so safe to say is the name of the album, which is somehow similar to but significantly more annoying than Gloryhammer's "Sword Lord Of The Goblin Horde". I think I would have preferred something in Finnish.

This album is my cup of tea in every possible way. production, riffing, melodies, atmosphere and vocals are excellent. "The Secret Of Streaming Blood" is indubitably one of the top three best melodic black metal song I've ever heard.
