This debut release from UK black metal outfit, Crom Dubh is a terrific example of celtic-influenced pagan-themed atmospheric black metal. The trap this genre sometimes falls into is of becoming all-atmosphere and no song, but this album does consist of actual songs, rather than merely musical "pieces".
Probably not an album for the black metal purists, but if you're more open-minded about your BM then give it a try. Sonny92
This is doomy as fuck. When I first heard this, I remember thinking "Ehh...not as good as Blood Incantation. Pass..." which was a pretty huge mistake. Listened again recently and am now completely hooked on this record. Everything is just so goddamned heavy. Glad I decided to give this one another try. bcb723
This was the first bit of solstice material I discovered after seeing the great JB of Grand Magus wearing a Solstice shirt with this art on. In my eyes he’s the king of metal so with his endorsement alone I knew I’ve stumbled across a special band. This along with white horse hill are absolutely brilliant . I’m slowly collecting all the vinyl . With a new singer on board I can’t wait for future creations. A truly wonderful band 👊🏻🤘🏻Nick Blakeway 🤘🏻👊🏻
