4.0 out of 5 stars mystical black metal 7 May 2004
Format:Audio CD
Limbonic art is comprised of two members, while the drums are created thanks to the aid of a drum-machine. Moon in the Scorpio is their debut album and is everything that black metal scorned at the time, coupling ferocious guitars and light-quick drums to majestic symphonies. The bassis non-existent in this album, the two members preferring to use the guitars to build up a wall of sound. Every song lasts over 6 minutes, the vocals veer between traditional black metal shrieks and baritonal choruses reminiscent of Ulver.
The production is impeccable, creating the right balance between guitars, drum-machine, vocals and synthesizer and conjuring up a decadent atmosphere.
The stand-out track, although every single song is majestic in itself, is the first one, "Beyond the candles burning".
The only reason I give it (only) 4 stars is to differentiate it from their follow up, "In abhorrence Dementia" that managed to top it. This is the perfect album for you whether you like old-school black metal with melodic influences or whether you prefer Dimmu Borgir and their like's more violent and disturbing parts.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant. 8 Oct 2006
By Erich Bumm - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I find very fascinating the overall evolution of symphonic black metal, from the earlier days of Burzum using the subtlest tinge of keyboards, to Emperor's romping epic grandeur, and now to this, Limbonic Art, whom really have very little to do with metal in the traditional sense and have transcended themselves to something entirely different altogether. Moon in the Scorpio is itself a Symphony that thinks its a metal album. It is wrought all throughout with enough gripping pathos, angst, grievance, introspection, and redeeming ecstasy to fill the biggest Shakespearean play. Its opening track, Beneath the Burial Surface, alone has a two minute-long symphonic intro, and by the time the nearly 14 minute long track is over you've felt like you've already heard the whole album, but it's just beginning! As in all classical Black Metal, this album rewards those who pay attention and get into the atmosphere and long-winded progression, and agonizes those who would rather listen to a neat and concise four minute long Cradle of Filth track to scare and impress their friends.

Limbonic Art has always used a drum machine, which could theoretically make them Industrial Symphonic Black Metal, but I really couldn't care less. The drums serve their purpose and keep a steady, rumbling pace of blast beats and double-bass, and actually sound quite organic anyways. The guitars, once again as in lots of SBM, are withdrawn and reduced to static, textural tones of distortion, which, along with the sizzle of the cymbals, provide a very shearing treble sound that I suppose provide some sense of the traditional hazy, grim Black Metal atmosphere at some parts, but mostly the guitar serves to support the keyboards.

One thing I've noticed about playing this release is that it just does not work during the daytime. The atmosphere evokes such a strong feeling of darkness and biting cold which only works during the nighttime. My recommendation: Take a nice, long midnight stroll, under the full moon, with this CD playing in your Walkman.

5.0 out of 5 stars Hmm.. the best ever 10 May 2006
By DarkAudio - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I don't know who this guy below me is that claimed this is his third favorite Limbonic Art CD. This is the best Limbonic Art CD.... frankly, this is the best Black Metal CD, ever.

EVER.

Buy this.

(p.s. I am an old fan of Dissection, Arcturus, Burzum, Emperor, etc... all the old classic BM bands.)

5.0 out of 5 stars behold the sky above, when the moon is in the scorpio 30 April 2013
By Bridget shannon - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
i originally got into limbonic art with the ultimate death worship album, this album is so much better in every way. no this isnt a very fast album with tons of blast beast but the thing is it keep you interested. limbonic art wasn't afraid to do what they wanted with their music. its a different symphonic black metal, haunting, evil. a lot of bands have tried unsuccessfully at mimicking limbonic art (odium) but couldn't do what Morpheus and daemon can do. this album is for fans of dimmu borgir, carach angren, old mans child, etc
5.0 out of 5 stars Symphonic greatness. 10 Oct 2010
By S. Kutasy - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
DarkAudio is 100% correct. The only thing that could make this better is a re-mastering.

If you like symphonic black metal, this is THE BEST EVER! I thought Emperor's Anthems To Welkin At Dusk was the be-all-end-all until I heard this.
This trumps the hell out of that one.
In Abhorrence Dementia is second in line to this masterpiece.

The re-issues of both of these just came out in late September of this year with slip covers I believe. Get it now if you don't own it.
When you do, listen to it in a candle-lit room with headphones.
