NOKTURNAL MORTUM's 2004 masterpiece!! This deluxe digipak edition combines the two editions (original langauge and English, including some different music) of the album, originally released separately in 2004 and 2005. Includes 36 page booklet.
Songs such as "The New Era of Swords" and "A Taste of Victory" alone are enough to make me seriously consider this album as one of the top releases of 2005, whose sole competition so far is the new Moonsorrow. But taken in the context of the album as a whole -- where my finger hits the fast-forward button way too often -- to give it such a high rating would be an inaccurate reflection. Then again, the five excellent 'real' songs form about 45 minutes of the album's 75 minute playing time... - Chronicles of Chaos5/5
