    It’s a beauty to behold the level of contentual and aesthetic refinement that Black Metal has reached! A proper Gesamtkunstwerk worthy of its place among European Art.

    Damn good music!

    Here’s a loose translation from the spoken word at 58:33 and onward:

    It has never been as cold as it is now.

    With their frozen hands the men try to catch the heat of the fire, but they feel nothing.

    The raging snowstorm going on outside is blowing powdery snow through the planks of the walls, making it feel like there is no protection from the cold.

    One of us suggests to make a fire from the coal we brought from the ship.

    We set the fire up and let it burn.

    We wait in silence until it warms us up, and lights up the house with its red glow.

    This could be a masterpiece if they would omit or shorten some tracks so the entire saga will fit in 50-60 minutes. And some of the spoken word sounds a bit too over-acted, maybe they should have used some voice actors instead, and the overall production might need some improvement. Nevertheless, a great concept album, the atmosphere is brilliant, especially because I can understand the lyrics 🙂
