Fine death metal with a psuedo-atmosphereic and even black edge to it. The beautiful guitar melodies and harmonies are great. The drumming is tight as hell. The vocalist is quite versatile, his voice rangind to a low growl to a higher shriek. The listening experience creates a mideavil milleu that brought me back the dark ages. When reading along in the liner notes(the vocals are great, but uncomprehendable), the music tells stories of battle and such. As for the vocal converation(check the previous reviews), there are few points to be made. Yes, if you don’t like screechs and grows, then maybe this isn’t for you. But, this doesn’t mean you must abandon metal. Bruce Dickenson(you should know who this is!) may possibly be the greatest metal vocalist ever.
