Staff review by
There are few people who are more impressed by Blut Aus Nord than myself. Even though I still maintain they're at their creative best when pushing the iconoclastic agenda (MoRT, TWWTG) I can still look on with a quiet appreciation of their more conventional works; the progressive melody of MV:II is not something I listen to very often but you'd have to be a fool not to recognise its quality and workmanship, as well as the virtual fan-service it turned out to be. Considering the vast spectrum of their discography the vinyl-only release that is What Once Was... Liber I broadly falls somewhere in the middle of the conventional and experimental.

Too much of vocal work in this
Giving my ears a rest from music.

Nihil's Maw
Track 1 (of the CD release) just opens up so hard... feels as annihilatingly vicious as scorpion venom burning through your veins while wolves are tearing out your throat. This is how I prefer my black metal to sound.
