I can't believe that album's been released already ten years ago! At that time, 80% of you were still in primary school or listening to NIRVANA in high school… and it's easy to bet that many have gone through without having even heard of this nice Swedish Black/Death Metal jewel!
As Black Mark never really did a good job with NECROPHOBIC, and as the rare copies pressed back then have already been bought a long time ago, Hammerheart decided to reprint "The Nocturnal Silence", and there's nothing to say, this album hasn't gotten old at all. It's still very punchy, has a real feeling, and shows that the ones who bet on NECROPHOBIC at that time were right.
So it will kick your ass, and you can only but fantasize about getting CD's such as this one in your favourite shops… shit, back in 1993, this album must have made a lot of victims, and converted many headbangers to occultism. Anyway, great stuff, and definitely a must-have! (Online May 4, 2003)
