I love Algleymi very much but there’s one area in which this is superior: production, especially the drums. Otherwise they’re two quite different records, but both are black metal classics as far as I’m concerned. Hopefully we won’t have to wait long to hear more. Metallurgical Fire
Pride. Heroism. Pathos.
A vivid glimpse into what went on in the hearts and minds of those courageous, vastly outnumbered Spartan heroes who faced impossible odds at the Battle of Thermopylae, and, devoted to death, sacrificed themselves in a glorious last stand that would echo immortally and inspire bravery throughout the ages.
Likewise, this album will withstand the test of time as one of the greatest in the history of metal and beyond. Voidysseus
