The first CD is a tedious, half-assed exercise in the industrial/black metal experiments that were popular at the time, by two bands far past their prime. If they're not embarrassed looking back on this, they should be. The bonus CD however contains the old Thorns rehearsal tapes - legendary material, giving valuable insight in how the Norwegian scene developed its distinct sound and technique, moving away from simple Sodom, Venom, Bathory and Hellhammer copying. The sludgy, morbid atmosphere only adds to the fun.
