Label: Flood the Earth Records
Format: CD
Released: 2005

This Norweigan release??...I think, because even though distributed by a small California based label the entire booklet is written in a European language. Even the title of the disc is not in English, and on top of that the band’s logo is absent from the cd cover? To start bad presentation. Why? From what I learned only 1,000 copies pressed for the States.


The music is very keyboard heavy combined with very fuzzy thin guitar and equally distorted vocals. The arrangements remind me of old Bathory, but not nearly as good with the production even poorer than what Bathory was working with in the 80’s. The disc overall lacks clarity and its sounds as if everything was processed through a window screen. Most songs are based on mood created by the dark keyboards and might be pretty decent presented as such but when its time for the drums and guitars its sounds horrible. No bass and no bottom end to be heard.
