In my opinion, Samael's first two albums - Worship Him and Blood Ritual were fairly standard and unremarkable works. Of course, there was an increased level of conviction and delivery from the first to the second, but the haunting, occultic darkness the band were trying to portray ultimately failed to fulfill its intentions, with only a moment here or there hinting that this band were to become something truly special in the underground metal scene.

A classic this. Clearly best Samael. I wonder why it is not to be found in the Top 200 (as of today). Only downside for me is that it suffers from a serious letdown after the first half of the album. Highlights: Son of earth, Til we meet again.
