Melds classic heavy metal, black metal and Native American melodies together seamlessly, and succeeding at making acoustic breaks engaging where so many other BM bands fail.
Favorite track: Lost on the Trail of the Setting Sun.
Exceptional guitar work. The intelligent use of Native American melodies and themes is done with class and sincerity. You can hear the passion and time that has gone into every song on this album.
Favorite track: October 6, 1813.
