Rating: 10 Fantastic, epic album. How this is rated so low is just baffling. Definitely one of the best Doom releases ever.

Rating: 7 I'm a big Epic Doom Metal fan, and i was drawn to this band from this highly rated album, but i consider this quite average compared to most other Epic Doom Metal bands i've heard so far. The vocals are pretty bad - zero emotion. Music is decent enough i guess.
