Listening to this album feels like a ritual of initiation, as if every track discloses another layer of an esoteric experience. There is a feeling of sacredness to the record, almost a liturgy. It is not yet know if we are to be the sacrificial lamb or a novel initiate in the Death Cult that is Sinistral King.
All this without sacrificing a sweeping epic sense of grandeur and plenty of heavy-as-bricks Black Metal riffs (crossing often enough into Blackened Death territory) dressed up in a clean cut, crisp production.
