I am not a big fan of things overtly satanic (as the content of this album is)but the melodies of the songs on this album and the structure, samples used etc make this album such a masterpiece that it becomes easy to ignore the true darkside of Tiamat. Stand out Tracks: Circles, Untill the Hellhounds sleep again, Will they come?, Via Dolorosa, Misantropolis...none of the songs are not good. It is much more varied that Prey and the other albums before. They have fused their old heavy sound with the gothic ballady sound of their later efforts. It works...beautifully!
