They open strong with "The Heaven In Hell" and really crush you with everything going on at once. There is some nice variation on vocals as the screaming vocals are the primary and the growls work as the secondary. There is even some awesome chanting at times chanting to mix things up. The guitar work is very technical and really creates an epic atmosphere mixed with some nice flowing melodies. My favourite piece of work of this album is defiantly "The Maze Of Madness". It just has loads of variety and I really dig the background instrumentals. It's kind of reminiscent of "Serpent Land" with the drum line though unfortunately it's missing the epic violin solo though they make it work. Solid 7/10 which is high considering this is mainly black metal.
