The three lengthy epics of viking / black metal featured on this early ep exhibit the quality that was required to allow Enslaved to be crowned as the worthy successors to First Wave legends Bathory. Faultless musicianship and complex songwriting have always been what make this band stand out in the black metal world and both are on display even at this early stage of their career. These three tracks strike an almost perfect balance between Viking Metal's sense of the epic and second wave Black Metal's aggression, resulting in my absolute favourite early Second Wave ep.
