If I have understood it right there has been a 14 year gap between albums from ORDER OF THE EBON HAND. That is a bloody long time. Not knowing what they sounded like in 2005 I have nothing to compare this new one to but I can say that black metal hasn’t come that long in the years that have passed. If they were this good in the past I can with a stern hand say that I have missed out on a good band. There is an epic feel to this that I like. They are not afraid to incorporate some good old heavy metal vibes in their black metal. At least the first track was like that. The second track was much more traditional black metal, yet with that air of epic to it. Not having any prior knowledge of this I gotta say that this one surprised me. As I listen to it I get a Dawn vibe from it. Nowhere near as good as dawn but in that same ball park. Anders Ekdahl
