Yes..a CONCEPT album..based on the KARELIAN ISTHMUS..a russian book of tale’s of old!!
This is flat out..BEAUTY!!!!!!!!!!!!!! it sound’s like the earth is inside your house when this is on!!! I mean this is something so personal for me..I cant beleive I am gonna review this album!!! BUT IT MUST BE DONE!!!
EACH SONG IS IT’s OWN ALBUM..MUCH TIME WAS PUT INTO THESE!!!
THE GUITAR’’s WEEP..THEY SLICE..THEY CUT..THEY BURN..THEY MOVE..THEY..EVERYTHING!! and the druming /bass playing is TOP NOTCH!! and the VOKILL’s do NOT crap out..these are rough as hell for MELODIC DEATH METAL!!! but this was the first of that gerne so of course everything here is PERFECT!!
This has a brother..and that is SENTENCED’s ”NORTH FROM HERE” which will get a review by me soon!! also this could be comapred to DEMILICH another FINNISH DEATH METAL band..whom I reviewed as well! but this sound’s like no other at the end of the day!! and ARGHOLSENT can be a compariosn to this!!! one of the best band’s ever..a band that has not SOLD OUT like AMORPHIS..SO DO CHECK THEM OUT!!
Now the re-release here is worth getting because it has the track’s from the ”privilage of evil” ep added on the end of it..which make’s a nice combo!!
THIS IS WHEN AMORPHIS WAS GOD!! THEY NOW SUCK..IGNORE THEIR CURRENT FECES!! WHY DO THE BEST BAND’s ALWAYS DIE OUT?? PARADISE LOST..KATATONIA..ANATHEMA..they all died!! SKREW THEM!! but buy their early album’s!!!!!!
JUST ANOTHER ONE OF MY ALL TIME FAVE’s…BUY THIS IF YOU WANT TO KNOW HOW IT FELT TO LIVE IN ANCIENT TIME’s..JUST TIMELESS PEREFECTION!!!
”IN THIS LAND OF HATRED..THE NAME OF GOD IS LOST”
