The other 8 reviews have covered this record very well. I just want to add: This record contains supreme musicianship and brilliant songwriting. Enslaved, quite possibly are the best band in this genre of metal. I strongly urge everyone reading this to “add to cart” So far in 2006,IMO, RUNN is the second best release falling a little short. The band to top this is Drudkh with their release “Blood in our Wells” which unfortunately Amazon does not have. Excellent Ukrainian Black Metal, IMO, the top band in the depressive Black Metal realm. Remember, Drudkh and Enslaved for Black Metal you can’t do much better. Peace.
