One look at this whole set-up and it's easy to see we're in for a pretty typical black metal listen. The logo, the artwork, even the name gives you a pretty good idea what you're in for. You know what? It is pretty damn typical.

The only question is, for being such a typical album, how the hell does Morok manage to achieve such shit-blasting power?

No funny stuff. Just black metal with a face-vs-brick-wall type impact. Unbelievably loud & crushing.

Isn't that album one that people first recommend when talking about death/doom classics? I don't know how that album is not death/doom.


Exactly. Brave Murder Day is easily one of the ultimate classic death/doom albums and is also a masterpiece. Other classics would be Turn Loose The Swans, Transcendence Into The Peripheral and The Silent Enigma.

On-topic though, I listened to this album for a few minutes and then decided to put on some other music. The reason is the style, which indeed seemed like blackened death if you ask me. I'm going to give it another chance, but seeing as I'm totally not fond of death metal, I'm not sure how long I would hold out this time.

This album still doesn't bore me after all these years, can't wait for the second opus that should be out soon.

Yeah I seriously love it now. Some albums need a relisten it seems.
