      It's not just a metal album, it's a work of art from the first to the last note. The band has really revealed up here both technically in terms of instrumental skills, and as composers, and as a truly extreme musical unit. There are no analogues of such music, at best, the ideas on "Rape of the Bastard Nazarene" and "The Goat of Mendes" were completed by the musicians themselves as part of Akercocke and their other projects...

      In fact, the listener is immersed in a complex, versatile, creative piece of music inspired by the aesthetics of sophisticated devil worship. An insane mix of Black and Death Metal, inhuman vocal ranges, interspersed electronics and classical instruments to create a hitherto unseen musical masterpiece. Is this album dark? - Undoubtedly and absolutely! Yes, it really is a dark art. But this is his intellectual side, connected with the creative beginning and the disclosure of its capabilities, its potential. In the year of its release, it was a real breakthrough and a new word. There is inspiration in this record, it was extreme in the year of its release, it is absolutely extreme, more than twenty years after the release date, and it will be dangerous for many decades to come. This work will outlive its creators.

      The vinyl reissue from Peaceville is great. Two heavy vinyls sound perfect, mastering for vinyl allows you to feel the chamber atmosphere even more (although the midrange frequencies were cut off a little - this is the most significant difference in comparison with CD). Otherwise, the recording is dynamic and balanced, no more than fifteen minutes of sound on one side. The gatefold is made of fairly thick cardboard - everything is solid and durable. The edition is supplemented with an advertising flyer from the label. Personally, one of the most favourite albums in metal culture is now in my collection on vinyl. Pleasure!

        Indeed, this is a very decent reissue. First time on vinyl, the usual peaceville quality for the gatefold with double heavy wax. The sound is fantastic, dynamics are correct. A must have for Akercocke's fans such as myself
