The sixth masterpiece THE BOOK by one of the first of the second wave black metal-bands to come out of Czechia.
I really love The Book. This is an album where a strong presence and epic composition with a powerful voice blend together to create something truly unique. Every song bleeds darkness and does so in such a way that it still feels sophisticated, despite how strange it all is. This is some dense, well-layered, rich, decadent heavy metal with just the right amount of black metal ethos and all-enveloping, gloomy pathos. There's plenty of listening to be done for this album as it's one of the strangest and strongest out there with plenty to experience from multiple listens in its massive, involved compositions. For mysterious, dark, and grandiose metal with an operatic flair, give The Book a spin!
