who complains about the ambient peace after such vicious heavy black metal, just b/c it goes on forever? that's the point. then when the guitars (and chainsaw?!) come back at the end it's just epic.

it's done better in Hvis Lysett Tar Oss but 2nd to that is still perfect.

this is the first black metal album I've found where that indiscernible screaming actually suits the music. To be fair I claim to know nothing about black metal at all, but still. The music is so raw and abrasive, it fits

Also, many people dont like the 25 minute long thing, but I think it's actually a fairly interesting ambient piece.

Like it's a black metal masterpiece, the tracks here are gorgeous and some of the best in the genre. But I can fathom for the life of me who would waste their time sitting through 25 minutes of nonsense that is Rundgang Um Die Transzendentale Saule Der Singularitat...

Varg did it better in Hvis Lyset Tar Oss balancing 3 masterpieces with Tomhet (a much better dark ambient piece).

Otherwise this is complete Black Metal perfection.

This is a great black metal album, excellent dark riffs for anyone who is looking for obscure music. The first track is specially good. On the downside, that 25 minute track steals a lot from the album. It just can't be ignored, its 25 minutes long!!!! That substracts a lot of points but you can always skip it.

This is a great album to start off with if you want to dig into the true, dark, Norwegian black metal scene.

The first 3 or 4 tracks are pretty good. The vocals work very well with the instrumentation and while it doesn't have an atmosphere that pulls me in, it certainly has a feel all its own. However, I can't for the life of me fathom why anyone would want to sit through the same sound over and over for 25 minutes. I have better things to do with my time.

Amazing stuff! This is softly heavy. Soft for the ears. Heavy for the soul.
