'A kaleidoscoping soundtrack for the modern era'. This record does away with all the nature-religion-folk in black metal, and goes straight for the hardships of urban life. Exquisite songwriting and production, sharp mix of pop and black metal.
If I ever held an album high on a pedestool, it's this one. A defining record in huge, epic, atmospheric black metal with masterful writing. The whole albums listens like a world in itself, with recurring themes and atmospheres.
