Sanctus is the best band to ever come out of the United States. This album is one of the best symphonic black metal releases you'll ever hear. It also has one of the best instrumentals. Metal Blade Records, maybe you should give Aeon Sky a listen and realise how badly you fucked up. It's so sad to see this band's potential go down the drain. I recommend this album if you absolutely love Dimmu Borgir. I don't love Dimmu Borigr, but Sanctus at least know how to write songs. As I always mention in my reviews, if there's an album cover with scary looking kid, the album will definitely sound good.
