Hype sticker over the shrink wrap:
'Completely remixed and remastered from the original master tapes!
One of Black Metal's most controversial albums
"Grand Declaration of War is a record that stands alone in the grand scheme of Black Metal as a scene. But it's a very cool record, which deserves some thought, attention and an open mind."
Angry Metal Guy'.

I really like this remaster. Some will definitely dislike the more modern, higher fidelity and warmer sound but I think it works for the experimental style of this album. It's more exciting and engaging for me.
