Yea I didn't find this one to be as great as Eternal Hails, still decent though. Score is about accurate.

Why release a new album so quickly after such a great one? I had barely absorbed Eternal Hails. I just don't get this quantity over quality mode of thinking. Anyway thanks for screening this one for me Goat (and Husker for that matter), I'm less high on newer Darkthrone than either of you so I won't bother.

The more I listen to this one the more I like it. Some solid riffage in this.

The riffs are solid but really the only two memorable songs to me are the first two. That 10 minute track blows like they were listening to wayy too much Celtic Frost when they wrote this. Its not bad but not really anything above a 7/10
