The fact that among the people Ereb Altor thank in this album's booklet is Quorthon is tells a lot. The spirit of Bathory can be felt throughout the album. Though, it doesn't mean that Ereb Altor sounds exactly like the legendary band. No, this is a band with its own face.
That all the band member also play in Isole also can be traced. Even if the music here is more in the vein of pagan black metal but the influences of doom metal are pretty clear here and there.
Overall this is a really fine album and I recommend it to everyone who love either epic pagan metal or epic doom metal.
