Customer Review

on 9 October 2009
Behemoth have really pulled out all the stops with this one being a perfect follow up to the Apostasy. They have managed to put together a very well rounded album and have obviously put a hell of a lot of thought into exactly what they want it to sound like.

The guitar sound is in your face, with riffs searing into your ears compounded by percission druming. A one point early in Daimonos the blasts and guiatrs sound like a battery of howitzers destroying all but your grateful skull. I dont think they have ever sounded as tight. The song writting has evolved again becoming more technical and even in tracks like Ov Fire and the Void were they have let up some speed but sacrificed nothing. The tune, satisfingly atmospheric, delivers some of the most pounding riffs of the album.

The production is evil and glorious creating depth to the album and adding to the songs. Nergal tries some crazy stuff here even getting a brass band and the almighty sitar thrown in for good measure.

The friendly black metal magicians have even been so kind to furnish us with a small doc about the making of the album. This gives some great insights into just how hard this band work and how each second is analyised and considered.

All in all a great ablum and certainly the heaviest of 2009. This one shall be left spinning in my CD player for some time yet. Do yourself a favour and go get it.
