Guest review by

I must admit, I was very sceptical about this album before I heard it, and about the band in general. Translated to English, my scepticism would sound like this: "A Greek Black Metal band? Pfft, crap! That's reserved for Norwegians and other Scandinavians! For Christ's sake (notice the irony about Christ), these guys don't even wear corpse-paint!" From the very 1st minute of playing Theogonia, I realised how very wrong I was. Not only is it great, but it has certain innovations I never heard in Black Metal.

First of all I want to mention that I never focused to specific categories of the metal music. I always liked to listen to all of the metal genres from heavy to black, from folk to progressive, from power to gothic etc. My criteria are strongly related to the emotions and feelings a specific release can cause to me. I really believe in the "if you like it, listen to it" dogma!

Rating: 10 Deeply impressed by this album. I've only listened to Aealo and thought it was the most powerful thing I've ever heard, but this one is even better.

Rating: 10 This album is brimming with magic. Every single song is captivating.

  He, the Aethyr is such a baller song. "BORN FROM INSIDE!!"

Rating: 7 Great album, But for me it is ruined by the guitar tone, cant put my finger on it, almost what you would expect to hear from a power metal release. hmmmm...

Rating: 9 Fantastic album! Great result in my opinion!

Rating: 10 In my opinion, this is the epitome of melodic/folk-inspired black metal. Their best album by far. I hope they write an album of this caliber again.

Rating: 6 I don't dig the increased rock structures and production. Some of the riffs are just annoying too (especially the ne-ner-ne-ner oscillating one on track 4). However, there are some cool new elements that I do like a lot. Just poor execution imo.
