Front Art design by Leonard Selzler.
Eight songs in this brilliant platter which, after an intro, starts with O CIRCULO DAS BRUXAS PERVERSAS, with its blackened metal, full of rhythm.
DIE FOR SATAN provides a large dose of old-school and squared black metal, with fast solo parts.
We push less in grandiloquent INFERNAL KINGDOM, before pushing more in LICANTROPIA, enriched by a great technical solo; truly one of our favs.
After strong ETERNA PENUMBRA, MISANTROPIA provides an heavier sound carpet while ANCIENT SPIRITS
ends in the best way this great album.
