Guest review by

How bad can an album be, judging by the fact that it starts with "Yearning Seeds of a New Dimension" and ends with "Divinity of Wisdom"? Even if it only contained these two songs it would be undoubtedly classic. "Heart of the Ages" is one of Norway's diamonds, although it doesn't completely belong to the black metal genre. It combines elements of black, doom and avant-garde metal, folk, electronic and classical music, becoming one magnificent piece of art that can satisfy every taste.

Rating: 8 I love 'Mourning the Death of Aasa'. It reminds me of 'The Great Gig In The Sky'. It's much less intense but, dare I say, more powerful.

  There's a fair amount of black metal in this, the tags should reflect that instead of being just Progressive Metal. Hugely forward thinking album this I reckon.

  I'm pretty sure it used to have black metal tags a while back.
