Staff review by
Jason W.

Vicious, timeless, and like a wall of fire that appears to dance in your eyes as it suffocates you, ...And So The Night Became does not just retell epic battles of mere mortals, it personifies the essence of chaotic warfare with the superiority of a pitiless, mocking god. The blood here is ancient, the mountains barren and severe, and the echoing screams of the dying is relentless. Throughout it all, it leaves you not only at the brink of crushing defeat, but with a nostalgic tear in your eye for all those who have perished before you.

This album is so fucking tasty I should throw it in a soup.

The early Aeternus is tasty indeed. I like the previous album even more (also Dark Sorcery EP is awesome) but this is still one of the best blackened death I've heard.

  Thank you Alex for reminding me of this hidden gem.

  Great stuff indeed. They don't make them like this any more.
