This is the 1st. Korean black/melodic death metal album released in Korea. Of course, it's well-made album, but it's not the best black/melodic death metal album. Their song is a little bit common. Someone could blame them "YOU HAVE NO ORIGINALITY!" Of course, it could be true. But almost every debut album is not perfect, as you know. Except you say "Ah, I might hear that song some months ago at another perfect album!", this is good album, far above 'bad' album, certainly.
And the most important thing is, they put KOREAN TRADITIONAL NSTRUMENTS together. 'Dae-Geum' (like flute) and 'Hae-Geum' (like violin) are here. Their mixed-up songs are really cool! You might listen to lots of European traditional black metal, and here comes new genre, Korean traditional black metal!!!
