If a gun was put to my head and I was forced to choose album to listen to for the rest of my existence, Lawless Darkness would be it. Darkly beautiful, brash and fantastical, it has everything you could possibly want from a Black Metal album.

Erik Danielsson is lyrical genius. His writings conjure up all sorts of disturbing imagery that seem to infuse so naturally with the music, it's sometimes hard to believe what you're feeling. While I understand that music is primarily something we hear, the goosebumps I get when I hear lyrics such as:..

"A lawless realm where chaos breeds and howls most foul asound.
So stay away, ye who is of God
This is enemy ground."

.. is just so overpowering, I may feel the need to sit down.

It's an ambitious album to say the least, without a single song under 5 minutes, and the total length an astounding 73 minutes long. Despite the length, listening to the Lawless Darkness in a single sitting is without doubt the only way I could suggest listening to it. For a Black Metal album, it is also a very melodic, atmospheric piece that in some way creates a weirdly serene ambience. In most of the songs, a darkly progressive aspect will form, bringing in haunting guitar pieces that echo and ring throughout the album. Combine this, with the typical furious drumming and guitar work, and the hideous screeches that are always present in Black Metal, and you'll find something entirely different. Something that is beautiful, heavy, atmospheric and wonderful, for all the right reasons and many more.

While the entire album is amazing, I feel I should give a special mention to my favourite songs.

5.0 out of 5 stars i love this 26 July 2010
By pat
Format:Audio CD
this is the first watain album i have bought and i have to say, i really wish i'd heard them before now. after reading really good reviews in metal hammer and terrorizer i thought i'd give them a go. when i first heard it i thought "this is alright, not too bad", as you would guess i hadn't paid enough attention to the album. one year later and i have to say that i kept listening to it and with each listen i began realize what i'd bought, one of the best albums of last year, of any metal genre, not just black metal. yes the album is catchy in places, yes it has a really good clear sound, and yes it has guitar solos, but i don't care if that doesn't make it black metal, this album is amazing and i love it.

on the strength of this album i have quickly bought sworn the dark and casus luciferi, both of which are really good as well and worth buying, just give them a fair few listens before making your opinion final.

5.0 out of 5 stars Pure black metal 20 May 2014

the album takes you far away from reality with its questionable themes - but the music is awesome. Owes a lot to Immortal, but offers a more produced sound

5.0 out of 5 stars Flawless. 26 May 2010
Format:Audio CD
This is the closest you will ever get to Dissection. It is a masterpiece. If you love Dissection, Necrophobic etc you will love this. 'Nuff said.
