For alleged black-metal beasts, these Norwegians sure sneak a generous ration of winding psychedelic axework and '70s-rock colors into their midnight church-pillaging gunk -- plus ringing licks to lure you in, sad and pretty choruses, incidental static effects, maybe even hooks. Apparent Entombed tribute "Wolverine Bastards" gets a healthy gallop going, "The Sound of the River" turns into Celtic Led Zep, "Fire on the Mountain" starts out thrashing mid-'80s-style, and "The Other and the Look" draws out its guitar lines for 10 minutes. And after all that, "Then We Die" aptly ends it all.
