With this album, the line up is swelling with new faces and the same faces from the last one, there are almost twice as many members in transition from the time between the gap of this album and Under The Sign of Hell. This is also the time that Gaahl comes into the band, he can be heard on the opening track, Destroyer and gives some help with the clean vocals from time to time. There is also the addition of a session member now, Daimonion, who has done work with Borknagar and other different Black Metal bands around this time. He does the keyboard and synth work for now, giving the album more of a quality of Atmosphere here and there, but not much and its hardly overdone. There is also a new drummer in the band as well, Vrolok, which his drumming is superior to the earlier Under The Sign of Hell release. Sometimes, Infernus and Vrolok drive the songs, continue them on while nothing else is going on, some slight hints of repetition but over all, it's a good sign.
