    You want to look into the abyss of the transgression from life to death? Here you are. I'm sure this is gonna be played during that trip.

      This IS the soundtrack for the midlle ages, nevermind there was no electricity... almost 40 years after it's release, what are more 40 years atop a five centuries old soundtrack?!
      Great.

        The best DCD album. Hands down. Perfect balance of great music and deeply important lyrics.

        This album was the transition period....it has the flavor of their first album mixed with the later stuff. Don't get me wrong please, every single DCD album to me is beyond 5 stars....this one is just a little further. The last track is such an important message in our time.
