Curse All Creation is a pretty impressive release all in all. Musically there's symphonic Black Metal, melo-Death, Neo-Classical Metal, Thrash and pure Heavy Metal madness, and all of these elements create a strong and very solid album. Cyclonis' dry and deranged Black Metal screeches also fit well into the music, and I really like all the wicked and fast-fingered Yngwie Malmsteen type of solo work here. What I don't like so much is that some of the drum parts simply sound too mechanic and cold. I assume they chose to use programmed drums.

Curse All Creation is closed by the album's title track, which is a nearly 10-minute long and clearly the most experimental song here, basically containing all colors of Heavy Metal (pitch-black blackness, blood-red aggression and so on). Somehow it manages to claim its place on the very top of the throne as the album's most mesmerizing tour de force, offering more than a solid musical performance.
