It has only been two years since the band's last release and it's obvious that you want more torture and punishment. You sick deviants! The slow churning guitar riffs combined with pounding double bass drumming and grumpy vocals makes "Last Journey" a punishing song that you all love and have come to know the band by. The sick guitar solo on here will make you wet your pants as well because it's loud, obnoxious and vintage.
"Reborn" gets even angrier than the opener as the tune is kicked up a few notches and continues to sound like vintage Swedish Death Metal. More brutality is served up here and these Vikings are unrelenting. The one constant factor here that the band keeps providing amass all of the mayhem is a killer groove and melody. Before you say anything, it's nothing sweet like on a COB or IN FLAMES album. The guys overall power reigns supreme over the melodies, but they are there if you listen.
Each song on hear delivers crushing and ferocious blows to the ear drums and the band wouldn't want it any other way. Since 1991, these guys have continued the onslaught and don't plan on wimping out now. Let the mayhem continue for several albums more. (Online November 4, 2004)
