Time to give hails to this legendary album. One of a kind and a pure magic to this day.

It's great but also sounds like listening in on Marko Laiho learning how to play guitar.

You're dead on, definitely one of a kind album as you put it. I still prefer the Oath of Black Blood, but was just discussing how legendary this album is the other day with a friend (the only other person I know in the flesh that even knows about Beherit really). It's like a blending of all the Beherit styles that ever existed in one album...and it's incredibly psychedelic, especially the ambient songs (Nuclear Girl, Summerlands), but then you have songs that could be on Oath like Nocturnal Evil and Werwolf, Semen, Blood etc. Songs like Lord of Shadows and Goldenwood and Gate of Nanna just stand on their own bizarre and mystic glory too I think...

Guitar playing isn't anything over the top but it shouldn't be anyway, it's Beherit.

The lack of technicality is a massive part of the album's charm. The sloppy, wonky playing can't be replicated properly by proficient musicians. I think they might have accidentally made a classic album as I imagine their vision was probably for something more sophisticated but the limited ability of the players resulted in something truly unique. For me, Zjeveni, by Root, sounds kind of like a proficient DDTM.

Agreed. Repetitive, hypnotic and simple touches were laid on this album to make the dark sound it created.

The greatest black metal album of all time. Truly dark and unique atmosphere, nothing can be changed or improved.

I'm a big fan of the album. One of the best. I think the other Beherit material is pretty mediocre though. Oath of Black Blood just sounds like kids who just bought theit instruments week trying to cover Blasphemy songs.

Agreed, perfect album! If i had to pick only one all time favourite it probably would be this!

Correction, kids who just bought their instruments doing their own version of a combination of Blasphemy and Holocausto styles. The noise and lack of talent is definitely part of the charm...but I definitely wouldn't expect every one to see it that way of course.

One of the very best.

I should make a thread about which albums are in this vein. Not many are or even come close to this accidental goldmine.

Ride For Revenge-King of Snakes is one of the closest I've heard to replicating that atmosphere. Would definitely be interested in seeing what other have to recommend in this vein, though. The earlier Root comparison was a fairly good one as well.

I've always thought that if you're listening to black metal for proficiency, you're doing it wrong. The savagery of early Beherit and "Messe des Morts" is still unmatched.
