Hades are a great Norwegian band and often overlooked in the 90's scene. But this album really desrves a listen, It's a perfect mixture of glorious epic evil riffs mixed with the dirty satanic ancient sounding black metal. This guitarwork is simply evil as all hell. Give this album a listen, holy shit...
