Stellar release with all the melodicism and nastiness we have come to love about black metal. What elevates Wampyric Rites above the cut are the synth pieces--which are made with as much detail as the metal tracks.
Incredible how one man can compose such a thing. Beautiful. Today's one-man bands (or projects) are to me contemporary composers comparable to those from the old times like Wagner, plus they are their own orchestra... WolfGang
