Rating: 9 Have been playing this a lot lately and even though I know it is AWESOME I never realized how brilliant it really is.
the spoken words in the intro to Allegiance is chilling

In case you didn't know, it's from a movie and you're actually listen to Al Pacino. The movie is called "Scent of a Woman". Really good film btw, not really dark as the music that took the sample (although the scene where those words were spoken is really dense) but yeah... it's a great movie (with one of the finest ending monologues I've heard in a movie). Pacino got his first Oscar ever for best actor (well deserved let me tell you... still can't believe it took seven previous nominations before he got an Oscar).

Didn't know it was Pacino until I saw Chobo_jokeR list. I know the name of the movie and I love Pacino but I don't know why I never bothered watching it. thanks for the info

I really enjoy that movie too. It's not the usual Pacino movie (gangster / cop), but it is excellent.

I'm actually listening to Pernicious Enigma now and wanted to see what people had said recently about the album. I totally agree with you Innerself...always knew this album was good, but it is actually quite brilliant considering it was only their second album.

2 hours of intensity.

Rating: 9 Hard for me to choose between this album and The Maniacal Vale as my favorite Esoteric/funeral doom release.

  Best album ever, period.
