Found this in a music store for about $4 if I recall correctly, and decided to pick it up because I wasn't really strapped for cash all that much. Came home, imported it all that, and wow! This album is great! Would've been glad to pay $15-$20 for it, it's very nice atmospheric/symphonic black metal, sort of similar to Emperor. Great melody throughout the album, good vocals and decent instrumental work. The production isn't too bad either. The lyrics are pretty good but full of spelling errors which does kind of detract from the overall quality, but it's a pretty minor flaw. I definitely recommend checking it out if you haven't though.
