As i said the other day my relitted urge to embrace this album again and give you folk a review!
Well! Here it is...
This Turkish hordes first full-album is a gem (in turmoil!) and it was a fulfilling journey to listen to it again!
This is a well made & respect inducing melodic & epic black-metal piece that never let you go until you are dead... a delightfull death i might add.
The intro is as symphonic as it gets and then the first "real" (track 2) song starts of with a bang and you feel the ancients swirwling around the mountains tops with Niklas Kvarforth at the frontline bleeding & screams! He doeas a superb job through out the whole record and gives the echoing sharp strings/keybords/acoustic interludes & choirs a suitable brutal and insane black aura.
Every song evolves with many different compositions and the blastbeats and fast riffing is striking the ass of god the whole time.
A chaotic stampede of reapers rustles up on your back and into your soul....
....enter the halls of forever.
Generally i dont like this grand and orchestral style in my black metal but as you now understand this is a big exception.Seek it up!
The stand out songs for part is number: 2, 4,7,8
1. Towards the Eternal Chaos
2. The Legend Sleeps Behind the Mountains
3. Hymn to Awakening
4. Age of Demons
5. The Sarcophagus
6. A Funeral Opus
7. Anatolian Dragons
8. Under the Lunar Eclipse
9. Nothingness, Emptiness, Chaos
The whole running time ends right under 50 minutes....juicy!
