Anybody tell you that Black Metal was dead recently? Just hand them a copy of this CD.

This one has just about everything I look for when I want to hear REAL black metal. Beautiful dark lush tremolo, tastful and majestic melodic themes soar over deliciously buzzy bass, and that lovely old school mix, done just right. You can hear all the instruments clearly, and all the songs are structured and mixed perfectly.

I can't find a single thing NOT to like. When I listen to this album, I feel the same way I remember feeling while listening to "Storm of the Light's Bane" for the first time. Though some fans might say that this album is a bit too Dissection-like, I would have to slightly dis-agree. First of all, the songs on this album all sound remarkably ORIGINAL to me. If there are comparisons to that of the afore mentioned "Storm..." or "The Somberlain", then it is more to Watain's credit that they were able to reproduce the quality of musicianship and professionalism of production contained within those early Dissection discs. Anyway, it should not be too much of a surprise to anyone, since Watain members E. Danielsson (vocals), and Set Teitan (Guitar and Bass) were both members of aformentioned!

Watain also shows how they can really mix it up. The first song, "Legions of the Black Light" greets you with crushing depressive chords that soon give way to thunderous blast beats that would surely please puppy piles of pitninjas. The intensity ebbs and surges nicely within the song finishing with a georgously rendered tremolo lead.

Many songs on this album will remind you in no uncertain terms where black metal has its origins. Both the first, as well as the second track "Satan's Hunger", is undoubtably Mayhem-homage.

Sworn to the Dark is their best by far. So far the best black metal I've heard this year. We know that Watain are inspired by old Dissection, and this album is no exception. Usurpers of the throne? Of course, and this totally makes up for Dissection (RIP) last piece of work.

Yes, it's beautifully evil, very well played and it'll get a hell of a lot of

play in your MP3/Car, whatever.

Buy or die!

There is not a bad song on the album. It's varied, emotional, creative, with excellent musicianship, and beautiful evil journey beginning to end. Atmospheric without relying on keyboards or computers. There is some Dissection influence, but still entirely unique. This is genuine, sinister, satanic black metal with compelling, powerful vocals. It's more cleanly produced than the other albums, which works just fine. This thing has lived in my cd player almost continuously since it first came out. If you haven't heard these guys you really need to.

So if you at all interested in the area black metal please purchase this album. In all honesty one of the most fulfilling albums i have bought in the past few years. I could not express how influenced by this album i was when i first heard and it has been in heavy rotation ever since. Watain creates an atmosphere that i find myself immersed in, not many bands have this ability to draw you in so well. Not a single track i do not enjoy on this album. Dark, heavy, and at times melodic but all with a sinister sense of doom surrounding it.

All I'll say is it's nice to listen to a black metal band that puts as much effort into their music as they do into their ideologies. The majority of black metal bands are so busy trying to be scary and grotesque that they forget there's actually songs involved. Watain actually take the time to craft songs that will resonate for a long time to come.

If your into BM give this on a try. They are not as heavy as bands like Marduk,Craft or as light as dissection, but sound a bit like dissection. I would give this a solid 3 1/2 maybe a bit higher if so many other good CDs had not just now came out. u can check them out on myspace if u google their name

Loved 2 albums I bought and read reviews about this one and got me wondering.
I bought it and put it in my car then OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOh!
Lawless darkness is still my # 1 but I'm not sure it'll keep its position.
I was pleasantly surprised with # 10 Dead but dreaming.
So beautiful
