After the softer, more atmospheric approach of Wintermoon Enchantment, I am glad to see Evilfeast make a turn back toward heaviness and aggression. This album still makes heavy use of the keys that have always been a hallmark of the band, but this album is much more ready to lean on the guitars and crush out some real Black Metal pummeling. Evilfeast remain as dedicated as ever to their cold and gloomy aesthetic, conjuring a sound that is like what if Emperor had just kept making In the Nightside Eclipse for 20 years. That is exactly what it is meant to evoke, and yet this is better produced than any album Evilfeast have ever made, with a unity of sound – a balance between keys and guitars – that turns this into a genuine Black Metal orchestra. An absolute first-rate album.
