A perfect concoction of cold, primitive black metal & forward-thinking ideas from an act unafraid to push boundaries, this CD has had a lasting and profound impact on many since 1996. For this CD/DVD release, this album has now had some extensive remastering work courtesy of Tom Kvalsvoll at Strype Studios in Oslo to give a better representation of the sound the band initially intended, & includes 2 bonus songs. The packaging also contains new artwork made in close association with the band to fully reflect their intended vision, plus liner notes and additional lyrics. Also included is a DVD containing 2 live shows from 1996. Grotten in Asker, Norway has until now been totally unknown to the masses except for the few that were present at the show. The other show is the more well-known Bradford, UK set from Mysticum's European tour with Marduk & Gehenna. Overall both gigs give a great glimpse into the pure atmosphere & intensity of this cult act - a must for all fans.
