Wait wait wait! Did you just say progressive _pagan_ metal?! Yessir, that's what I said. Instead of reiterating the same formula (as it seems to be common practice in the pagan metal scene) after their 2007 masterpiece "Leben und Lebenswille", Bergthron pull a Theatre Of Tragedy and do exactly what none of their fans wanted them to do: abandoning the epic OoooOOOooOhhh parts altogether and becoming modern, fresh, progressive and, yes, perhaps even experimental and avantgarde, while song titles like "84°03'N 174°51'W (Asgard)" reflect their attempt to deliver a modern interpretation of the myths of yore. Highly recommendable for Enslaved worshippers and pagan metal fans who want to listen to something different for a change.

Strange album. Sounds nothing like its predecessors.

All life begins with Nu and ends with Nu... This is the truth! This is my belief! ...At least for now.

Their last few albums were unique enough but I've never heard anything quite like this one. "Pagan" metal is about the only way to categorize this (even though the word pagan has a meaning that is more aesthetic then musical)

Sounds really refreshing. I think I'm gonna buy this.
