Debut full-length by this genius esoteric band. Nahtrunar deliver multiple injections of hypnotic shades, filtered through a sufficient diversity of brilliant riffs. Truth is aesthetic has always been important for black metal in its history, but things got a bit too far in the '10s; to the point I miss the qualities of powerful, distinctive riffs. Nahtrunar is here to offer the highest art of finely complex structures, keeping in mind the songs need to breathe without interference in their consistent flow.  

On a personal comment, I actually wanted this to be my first vinyl release, for I believe this band is destined for greater things to come. Even if their leads shine in time through their esoteric aura, their approach enhances their ideas to a point they don't lack in vitality; even after repeated listens. Their identity is a mesmerizing blend of Aesthetic and Perception; Perception that makes them differ from most traditional bands, for their riffs reek of musicianship and subconsciously veiled inspiration.  

Plus, one more thing. I am sure some will complain about the limitation, but few people genuinely cared when the CD was out and that's a fact you can't deny. I guess more will pay attention now only because it's vinyl, but I prefer a simple low-priced edition you'll enjoy instead of something you can put as a prize on your wall. Arcane Angels now offer Nahtrunar DLP for the price of 19 euros; but if you combine our releases and/or distro stuff, then you can get it for the price of 17 euros. More than fair in my opinion, considering its limitation and what you pay for most DLPs nowadays.
