Track 3, Auto-da-Fé, offers much the same as the previous two, mostly technical and progressive riffing accompanied by guttural growls and blast-beats. Purified by Fire, their fourth track, sets the gold standard to gauge the rest ov the album by, though. It's both technical and progressive, the riffs almost bordering on early Bathory, a la "The Return" quality. Much enthusiasm for the tracks afterwards!
All in all, this album is powerful. It's not a masterpiece, worthy ov being lauded as the pinnacle ov modern black metal,
yes, but it's got chops. It's got a fucking spine and it isn't afraid to prove its worth with the shredding solo work found
within 95% ov the songs on here! If you need any more evidence ov this, give this album's title track a listen. Track 5,
"Satan in the Death Row", starts off with the typical progressive riffs one comes to expect with this album, and then drives it home with the ferocity fueled by the burgeoning black metal scene from the late '80s! All in all, highly recommended!
