Review



This is a bit vague but very cool black metal cd, with a very typical atmosphere. This is mainly because of the vague production, and because of the grunt. I think Grimm's grunt is one of the best I ever heard. There's not much stuff like keyboards or solos on the album, but it is very melodic. Speed varies from very slow to very fast, so it doesn't bore quick. Anyways, it promises a lot for the future...
