This is quite a different band than in the old days of To Embrace the Vampyric Blood, as only mainstay Scorpios remains. Originally a Californian, he migrated to Germany and has recruited a full lineup of new musicians, to make this new album Crimson Moon's first real band effort.

Stylistically, this is still the same Second-Wave Black Metal that I expect from Crimson Moon. Maybe a bit less occult sounding due to a fierce, sharp recording job, but the songwriting is as epic and orbicular as ever, and while more modern-sounding, the production does not clean things up too much. If you are a fan of this band, then this is an album you can grab without hesitation, as it is pretty much a perfect distillation of both the murky sound of their old days and a new, sharp, well-realized songwriting approach.
