I bought this album on the strength of a magazine feature on Burzum. I was not disappointed.
You can sometimes tire of a lot of 'metal' sounding like just another album. This CD stands out by sounding different, not one track comes across weak, all are hypnotic and atmospheric with long riffs. This being my first album by Vark, I find His range of vocals truly fantastic and after many playings enjoy the CD more each time.
I will not even try to slot the album into a metal category, He stands alone as being just a fantastic maker of great music and I will be collecting further CD's by the band.
