Raemar This is how I longed to hear the organ & piano incorporated, but never thought would come to fruition; Unique, intriguing, dark, challenging, intelligent.
I may have swooned a bit.

baudelagon Il est évident que le recours à l'orgue donne, en plus de l'originalité, sa majesté et son austérité à cet album. Nous entrons là dans une cour des enfers, à moins qu'il ne s'agisse d'une messe infernale. Mais la voie d'accès n'est pas toujours facile. J'entre encore péniblement dans des morceaux un peu alambiqués, encore plus confus suite à de multiples transitions sonores. Pour l'instant, tout cela me tient un peu en respect plus qu'en communion.

Nuno Lourenço This is rapidly escalating in my fav Black Metal albums list, being already in the top 10. An album that presents itself as utterly creepy and dark. This is art in the form of an avantgarde mayhem! Favorite track: A Principle on Seclusion.
