genre : neo-classical, melodic black metal
similar bands : Keep of Kalessin, Solefald
origin : USA
strong spot : ''frozen landscapes'' atmosphere
weak spot : only few of the tracks push the limits while the rest are more or less conventional

I really enjoyed this album. The band plays more or less typical northern BM with a symphonic(neo-classical according to the band) touch. The combination of the dark or atonal melodies and the raw (sometimes messy) production works fine and occasionally sounds a little bit avant-garde. Even though the band's origin is misleading, the main guy behind this band is Scandinavian (Christopher Erikson) as his name implies.
