Svartsyn - Timeless Reign (2007)

Previously on OPIUM HUM:
Svartsyn - ... His Majesty (2000)

To me, Svartsyn's raw, ass-kicking second album, which I have linked above, is one of the all-time great black metal records. Timeless Reign is a different beast. It's far more polished, and although it's generally pretty fast, it's more about atmosphere than brutality. Also, gotta love how happy the snake head in the upper right corner looks. The rest of the heads are here to destroy; that one's here to party.

Track listing:
1. Intro / Surth Lit the Earth
2. Tehom
3. Sanctus Satanas
4. My Sinner
5. Birth of Terror
6. Timeless Reign
7. Spiritual Death

Out of closed eyelids pours the blood of beauty
