A must for any fan of CF, This album is chock full of oddities and rare stuff. Live material, unreleased, and three covers grace this album. Carpathian forest have made their sound so dominant in the past five years it makes one have shivers in their spine. A sound that Darkthrone created, CF have only improved on it and made it ten times better. The first four songs are all unreleased, There are covers of Darkthrone, Discharge, and Venom on here. The Venom cover is hilarious but true to form. The live material album doesn't bother me that much seeing as how some of my favorite tracks are done live. He's turning Blue is done beautifully and also the classic Return of the freezing winds. I wouldn't consider this album a best of, just an album to sit back to and listen to how a band can change for the better in their mastery of their own style. 10 years of screaming black metal darkness!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

5 Excellent - Buy it and say a prayer to the metal gods that you were tuned on to this masterpiece. A classic.
4-4.5 Great - Almost perfect records but there's probably a clunker or a lacking somewhere to keep it from perfection. You won't feel bad about dropping some bones on these.
3.5 Good - Most of the record is good, but there may be some filler. This is the OK range where you'd search for the record on sale or used.
3 Average - Some good songs, some bad ones at about a half/half ratio. Could show skills but be dull overall. Redeeming qualities for indy bands are effort and passion. Majors that don't try or suck outright end up here.
2-2.5 Fair - Worth a listen, but best obtained by collectors. There is much better metal out there.
1-1.5 Bad - Major problems with music, lyrics, production, etc.
0 Terrible or an otherwise waste of your life and time.

Note: Reviews are graded from 0-5, anything higher or not showing is from our old style. Scores, however, do not reveal the important features. The written review that accompanies the ratings is the best source of information regarding the music on our site. Reviewing is opinionated, not a qualitative science, so scores are personal to the reviewer and could reflect anything from being technically brilliant to gloriously cheesy fun.

Demos and independent releases get some slack since the bands are often spent broke supporting themselves and trying to improve. Major releases usually have big financial backing, so they may be judged by a heavier hand. All scores can be eventually adjusted up or down by comparison of subsequent releases by the same band. We attempt to keep biases out of reviews and be advocates of the consumer without the undo influence of any band, label, management, promoter, etc.

The best way to determine how much you may like certain music is to listen to it yourself.
