The album opens with the track 'Altars In Temple Sewers', which immediately comes up with the gnawing and scratching old school black metal sound. This is one ugly song, but also one that starts showcasing an epic and atmospheric sound. Little by little, the keyboards come shining through and the whole thing starts getting better and better. By the end of the song, I'm convinced that this stuff is not inferior to the Dimmu Borgirs and Limbonic Arts of this world.
'Everyday Is Death For Us' only confirms that. In fact, this could have been a Limbonic Art song. This skull shattering piece of music is sheer insanity, only suited for experience black metal fans. That could also be said about the rest of the songs by the way. Seasoned black metal aficionados can easily appreciate this work, especially the ones who like to alternate their aural torment with stunning ambient pieces.
One of those awesome pieces of ritual ambient is 'Pandora', one that reminds of something between Puissance and Penitent. I know, that's a whole other genre but it certainly fits on this album. It's followed by the pulverising 'Funeral' a song that would have fitted perfectly on one of those old 'World Domination' compilations. That also counts for most of the tracks on this full-length. This is a killer, that's for damn sure.
I'm not going into a track by track description here. Instead, I'm going to end this review by recommending this album to all you black metal addicts out there. You want Chaos? Yayla delivers. You want aggression? Yayla delivers. You want atmosphere? Guess what, Yayla delivers. If you like music to beat you into a bloody pulp and offer a nice funeral procession afterwards, this one definitely deserves a spot in your collection.
