Eternal Samhain was born in Verona in 2006; shortly after they presented themselves as a strong and tenacious Symphonic Black Metal band. Listening to the album, we find significant influences with Cradle of Filth and Dimmu Borgir style but not without more extreme influences, such as Marduk and Dark Funeral. After the symphonic and harmonious intro, there is "blackframe": in this track the voice often changes intonation, in fact singing in Shagarth mode often changes, as in reciting Emperor Magus Caligula (this change can also be found in the following tracks), while the guitars have a sound that is not prominence, keyboards create a sweet and lulling background that strangely fits. "Vas Damnationis" has a faster drums than the previous song, the voice tone reminds to Dani Filth in albums such as "Damnation and a Day,"; "Sinful in every Choice" reminds me of Marduk with fast riffs, some melodic parts distinguish the song from the other.The album ends with "Obscuritatis Principium": the intro style reminds me of the album "Cradle of Filth - Goodspeed in the Devil's Thunder", the drums often stop the pace with fast passages, guitars accompany the flawless keyboard, such as during the whole album.A band that is probably far better than Dimmu Borgir and Cradle of Filth in many aspects; a beginning with a bang!

RATING: 8/10
