I bought a copy of this at a record store with very little knowledge of what it was, but this album blew me away. Black metal with clean production often loses a lot of its atmosphere, but this album comes through with one of the strongest senses of atmosphere and balance between melody and brutality that I've heard in a long time.

The dynamic of this album and its Slavic spirit is overwhelming from the beginning to the end. Full of energy and relentlessly stomping forward there is no rest for the listener. Mainly the songs are played straight forward, so quiet interludes or anthemic choruses have even more impact. Very well balanced and a fantastic new discovery for me this year. Listen to "Zov iz Magle" and get caught yourself! H.L.
