Borknagar was added elements from other brands of metal on this disc to awesome effect. Anyone who says that Vintersorg does not add a new dimension to this band has their head waaaaay up their butt. Without sacrificing the heaviness that made Borknagar the band they are today, they have added melodic elements that further cement them as a top name in black metal. Long live Borknagar !!!

I really was not a big fan of there old albums but now after hearing their new album i was stunned at the guitars and the vocals. they have really improved on this album. the most outstanding album i own

this is one fine album indeed.as if borknagar wasnt already good enough, they add the vokills of the great vintersorg on this one.....and may i say it completes them. this band is so good, id dare anyone out there to compete with them. hands down, this is purely classic. all of thier works are truly stunning, and this one proves that they are without doubt, the top name in black metal

fuck me, i thought i had heard the best black metal had to offer when i discovered Dimmu Borgir in '95. Borknagar are one of the best melodic black metal groups i have ever heard, however they do'nt compete with the sheer fucking brilliance of Cradle of Filth. some cool Borknagar tracks- God of my World, Liberated, and the Traveller (album Epic, look it up, it's insane).

yeh not bad but definitly in the same class as late dimmu and all cradle, Vints vox are decent but definitly not on par with Arcturus or Emperor, matter of taste i guess
