When i preorded this album i was alitle in conflict with myself, should i order it or not, since i was not to impressed over Immortals last releases.
Before i received it in the mail in mail i heard some tracks from the album on Youtube and  the optimism rised. After listen through album a couple of times
I came to the conclusion this is a great album, with him he has gotten Creature on drums from Benighted and King ov Hell from Gorgoroth.This is not a typical Black metal album, this has a more modern and catchy sound. The potent mix of black, death, and thrash makes this an enjoyable listen. You can of course here some old Immortal in the tracks but that is natural since its Abbath From the the start with To war and to last track Endless, you have been served an awesome album with heavy riffs, some blastbeast and 8 catchy tracks. The musicianship is excellent throughout the album and songwriting is better than in the late Immortal period. Recommenedable and a good album, my favorite release
so far this year.
