5.0 out of 5 stars Really Good Black Metal! 15 April 2014
By Curtis W Hurley - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Some of Nagash's projects seem to stray away from the purpose. Too much keyboard, too symphonic, too industrial. This project is just relentless black metal with no apologies. Its fast, brutal and honest. The way Black Metal was suppost to be.

5.0 out of 5 stars the perfect blend of true and symphonic 7 May 2012
By Matt Stoessel - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Troll's debut EP (released before this debut album) is stylistically similar to this album, but didn't utilize keyboards. More so than almost any album from Norway in the 1990's second generation of black metal, Troll's Drep De Kristne stands solidly as a "true black metal" album OR a "symphonic black metal" album. Whichever your preference is, you will be satisfied with this album.

How does this please true black metal fans? Answer: If you removed the keyboards, you'd have a perfectly complete black metal album, and the remaining instruments provide plenty to listen for. Riffing is raw and dirty without being finely produced (ala newer Marduk, and any other bands with heavy focus on bass) ala A Blaze In the Northern Sky (Darkthrone) and never settles with one speed.

How does this please symphonic black metal fans? Answer: Just as the straight-black metal varies from song to song, so do the keyboards, and therefore, so does the atmosphere. Fans of even Obsidian Gate will find themselves taken all around the night sky with the ever-changing pacing and keyboards.

Songs are short, as on Odium's "The Sad Realm of the Stars." You only have one song exceeding 4:20, and that's because it contains the album's intro. The album flows smoothly, so you will feel like you're being taken on one long journey throughout the album (as opposed to a separate journey for each song). I typically enjoy longer songs in my symphonic black metal (ex. Sirius, Limbonic Art, Obsidian Gate) and was hesitant to get this album seeing the song lengths (as I was with The Sad Realm of the Stars). Now I love both albums.

This album wasn't too hard for me to find. I think I have a reissue, though, as my cover art is mostly red and black featuring one of the members in what looks like a picture frame. I would have preferred the original which depicted what seems like a village. The original was released in February 1996, before Limbonic Art took the world by storm with Moon In the Scorpio - the classically-inspired debut featuring two songs over 13:00. Very little symphonic black metal had as of yet been released when Troll put this out; they very possibly looked towards Bathory's "Under the Sign of the Black Mark" for inspiration for atmosphere, then merged that with a true sound from the Darkthrones and Mayhems and Burzums of the early 1990's.

Bottom line is this is one of the premier Norwegian symphonic black metal albums. You know you can't go wrong here. If you're interested, get this album.
