Quite a not bad record. Stays away from the sickly sweet melodies of MV:II and seems a bit better balanced. Probably not something I'm likely to visit all too often though.

It's a fake, please listen attentively before judging and spreading the lie. It's the new debut album by the heavy metal band Sons Of Crom.
The same thing already happened with the incoming Aphex Twin album, and a lot of people are talking nonsense because of a fake.

What? What do you mean by this? Forgive me for being naive, or maybe missing someone's sarcasm, but I didn't even know shit like that happens.

Btw, yeah. It's better than the Caladan Brood original cover

Honestly I can never get why people dislike MV I... to me that one is almost as good as TWWTG, so that would tell you how great I think it is.

Actually this was a reference to a joke said in some other thread, where it was stated that this cover looked like a Caladan Brood one.

I don't dislike MV:I, I just think it's a totally unnecessary record. I'd much rather listen to The Eye's album.

I really don't understand how a record can be unnecessary. Seems a bit arrogant to state a thing like that.

The Eye, eh? MVIII just ended so I'm now checking out The Eye's album. I agree so far, this indeed sounds more interesting and better.

Unnecessary, you say? If this isn't awesome melodic BM then I don't know what is. (much better than MVII and MVIII)

I have absolutely no need for it in my life when the ground was already covered with Ultima Thulee (and Vlad in fact), and then expanded on with The Eye. Ergo, totally unnecessary to me.

But if it's an enjoyable album, it's not unnecessary, I'd say.

I'm sitting somewhere between a 6 and a 7 on this one. Yeah, it's good, but really nothing new to see here, and hell, even if they wanted to go back to melodic BM for a sec, they didn't have to make MV III an exact clone of MV II (which it pretty much is). Vindsval, stop dicking around and do an 888 trilogy ffs

I think Marcel has gotten sharper and more extreme when it comes to off-topicness warning over the years.

Listened it twice and I feel more spins are necessary to fully grasp it. Paien is freaking amazing song, but that must be coz I listened to it about 20 times since it was available for streaming before the full album. The rest didn't quite click instantly but certainly sounds like a better MVII, which would be the closest thing sound wise.

I honestly don't know what happened with the first listens but I guess I wasn't in the right mood, or I just expected something different. Anyway, I've recently revisited it without too much interest and... well, it fucking clicked.

I really don't know how Blut Aus Nord manages to do it, but every single MV release is totally average black metal whereas most of their other stuff is totally stellar.

It really shouldn't come as a surprise. It's a series in which Vindsval sticks to a much more traditional style. I can actually kind of appreciate that he so clearly just makes the music he wants to, regardless of reception.

Only listened to it through a few times, it's another great addition to the MV series, it feels like a logical step from MVII.

It took me a while to digest this album.
It's a great album by any band's standards, but for Blut Aus Nord's standards this is a bit below par.
It still made it to my 2014 best-of list anyway as I enjoyed it much more than other albums from this year. I have to say 2014 was a generally unimpressive year.

Yeah, spun this 3 or 4 times and it really didn't do anything to me. Without a doubt the worst of the three MV albums, with the first one being the best.
