  Very good songwriting with great riffs and brilliant drumming by Meilenwald. Track 6 is epic.

Rating: 10 Sooo superior to Strontgorrth. It's a good record but this is majesty at its greatest.

Ehh, not "sooo superior", but certainly a tad stronger, and more focused feeling. This one truly is majesty at its greatest though. Seriously unreal album

  Srontgorrth > this. It is known.

This one is immensely good, obviously, but the next one is among the best BM albums evah for me (the fact that I listened to it before and more frequently that Hunengrab might influence, won't deny it).

Agreed. Srontgorrth is pretty much superior to this.
Actually an interesting comparison is the 'Srontgorrth (Das Dritte Kapitel)' with 'Kapitel Drei (Der Herbst) - Endzeit' in terms of drumming and production, with the former one being kind of immature while the latter one being just perfect.

Rating: 10 Actually I'd say it's Srontgorrth's "maturity" that makes it a far less enjoyable record for me, and with less character than this, both in sound: Hünengrab emphasising the raw / melody juxtaposition whereas in Srontgorrth it's too blended and indistinct in that respect (there's little euphoria in Srontgorrth), and also extending to the songs: Hünengrab having a far more direct and focused approach as opposed to Srontgorrth's vague, progressive structures which often float off in uninteresting directions. More mature perhaps, whatever that really means in music, but then who wants to date the mother when you can have the daughter.

For some reason I never took the time to listen to Hünengrab Im Herbst, despite loving Srontgorrth, but your description of what makes it superior, especially the more direct and focused approach, gives me the highest expectations

Halfway through the album now, and I'm certainly not disappointed

Phew, I'm glad you're liking it. I always hate it when people listen to something with high expectations based on my spewings

Yes I'm sure you're relieved now! The burden of being an opinion maker I guess

Oh and by the way your little spewings made me order this album

My work here is done. I think I've earned myself a cookie.
