This exceptional Black Metal album was released in 1996; if you like your depressive/suicidal Black metal then I recommend you track it down and get it immediately.
Considered by many the forefathers of this particular sub-genre, (alongside Burzum of course), their sound is archetypal and much-copied.
The album is typically raw and unpolished, yet still well-recorded enough, (relatively speaking), so that the songs shine, albeit in a murky, dank, grim kind of way!
This is the kind of album where you can easy drift off and become one with the repetitive guitars and the feeling they convey. For this reason I find this album very satisfying and worthy of inclusion in anyone’s collection.
