Holy crap, the first time I heard this I just about wet myself. Okay, seriously though, Alexi is SICK. His innovativeness rivals that of Iommi, merely for the simple fact that NOBODY has done that before, nor sounds anything like him. You can clearly hear his roots are from listening to old school (real) metal like Maiden and Priest, and obviously, classical. HOLY CRAP. Deadnight Warrior, hands down, best song on the disc. Great opening track. Pick this up, you will buy every COB CD afterwards. I did. I started with Hatebreeder (Killer CD), got this one, then the other two. You won’t be disappointed.
