06:28 - deadone What's there to understand. A subcult of an extremely large religious organisation pushing it's own agenda? No supernatural satanic conspiracy here!
06:04 - Redn1ght Actually, Jesuits are pretty much infiltrator/spy type organization so they have their members up there. Too much to explain about this subject but watch the videos, you will understand more. :|
06:02 - deadone So catholic church is an evil Jesuit/Mason/Satanic conspiracy. When do the aliens, CIA and Zionists come into it? Or are those guys running the Jesuits, Masons and Satanists!
06:02 - Redn1ght Think about this for a second with some celeb "sacrifices" (without gods) They make millions more from dead musicians than those that are alive. Think Elvis, think Michael and others like them.
06:00 - deadone A 2000 year old organisation is bound to have quirks, factions, ideologies and strange values. It's more modern offshoots are the same. I don't buy into Satanic conspiracies (I'm an atheist so no devil/gods in my world).
06:00 - Redn1ght Oh also, the Pope Francis has received the Jesuit training/membership. Soo yeah, if that kind of guy is leading a church like that. Jesuits TOTALLY don't have anything to do with conspiracies.
05:57 - Redn1ght How is it stupid about the Jesuits? You can find their logo in almost any sold-out church. IHS, black sun of Jesuits. Masonry is a known cult and satanism is basically part of that same sort of deal. :P

A follow up album to Hammerheart, very epic indeed, and with wonderful musicianship involved, as always. A worthy album for it's predecessor.
The album indeed starts out with an eerie wind atmosphere, it slowly adds up to loud guitars and depthy drums, very powerful indeed. The first song I think, is very great, the weakest part is probably Quorthons vocals, which maybe could've been a tad louder, and maybe better sang? Not sure, the rest of the song is just amazing work, in my opinion. Very atmospheric and somewhat doomish. It's 14 plus minute length seems to fly by as you sit and enjoy the music, it fades out with great acoustics and atmospherics (the wind.) You can practically see the mist.
It doesn't quite reach the standards set by 'hammerheart' in my opinion, but it comes damn close. The title track is a legendary epic, and most of the songs here really grab your attention with their victorious melodies and viking imagery. Brilliant album, even if it is the last truly brilliant bathory album.
This album and all his later albums all are not listenable due to his damaged vocals.
I like his vocals on this and especially the 2 Nordlands. I'm not hearing damaged vocals.
His vocals started gaining more textured on Blood Fire Death and Hammerheart, especially Blood Fire Death which packed with wonderful black "harsh shrieking" that really damaged his vocals few years later. His vocals became thin which can't drag to the extreme (most of the time stop half way), what a shame.
