Rating: 8 An excellent album, and one that really shows the band's top notch instrumental performances the most. The rhythm section is both heavy and powerful in the shorter tracks such as 'Black machine' and 'Death of the sun', but the real highlights for me personally are the longer, more doom-laden songs in 'Master of the pit' and the extremely evil sounding title track.

  Good album. I love the instrumental Toccata in Dm. It reminds me of the 1970s movie, Rollerball which used Bach's Toccata.

Classic stuff.

EDIT - Also love the art work - very Dungeons and Dragons 2nd edition!

Rating: 9 This is a total classic! The title track has all the trademark Cirith Ungol characterirstics and would be the one I would recommend to someone who wants to get into the band. This epic/doom hybrid they created, with the love 'em or hate 'em vocals of Tim Baker is probably at its best here! One Foot In Hell will follow 2 years later and then chaos...
