While i dont really like to listen to this album, it does present a lot of great ideas that Mayhem managed to get right in their later releases, but as they are on this album it doesnt quite work out. It definitely holds a special place in their discography as their most ambitious and unconventional record, but purely as music it's personally my least favorite studio album from Mayhem.

Greatly Underrated.
