I remember waiting for the release of this album after their mindblowing second album " Hatebreeder ". And I was not dissapointed. Infact this album made me fall in love with this metal band from Finland even more.
They have done an excellent work with this album as well. Awesome guitar solos, solid rhythm and really cool harmonies are employed. The highlight of this album would be the awesome solos in each in every track in this album. Alexi is bound to inflict sweet pain on you feeble mortal heart through his six stringed demon.
The album starts out with the title track and the opening melody of this song is legendary. " Children of Decadence " is another song that grabbed my attention. The intro is very melodic and hooks onto you and the solo halfway through the song is also really amazing. And i neednt even talk about the rest of the tracks in this album. You got 6 killer songs lined one after the other thats bound to blow you. The guitar and the keyboard have really nailed the solos. The W.A.S.P cover , " Hellion " , was also done great by this five metallers.
On the whole this album is really something every Bodom fan should listen to or any metal fan for that reason. After all Bodom is a band that strikes fear into the heart of the unbelievers.
