Mare Cognitum is without a doubt one of the most consisten BM projects out there. Everything hits the mark and that can clearly been seen here on this debut. Wonderful stuff from beginning to end! ronnie
This album is just like every other Black Metal record you'll find in my collection: 90s inspired, with some rocking parts, mostly fast with slow parts here and there.
I can't point out really where the magic in this release lies, but it's there and it caught me in seconds, this is likely going to be a future classic. Wallow Within
