      Gorgoroth's fourth album (1998).

      Gorgoroth's career takes a downturn with their fourth 'full-length' album, a term that has never seemed particularly appropriate considering the meagre duration of the band's recordings, and one that is especially dubious here considering this album's status as more of a collection of B-sides lumped together with arbitrary new material. The booklet claims that these songs were recorded between 1994 and 1998, and the varied sound, styles and production quality of each song belie the album's nature as a cutting room compilation.

      This is still high quality black metal performed by masters of the craft, but it lacks much of the classic feel the band once possessed, as well as lacking their usual creativity. 'Destroyer' is clearly the new song tagged on to the beginning with the new vocalist, and it's reasonably catchy as Gorgoroth tends to be without really making a name for itself, but the album improves as the sound quality worsens and 'Open the Gates' and the more overtly melodic 'Om Kristen og Jødisk Tru' act as final, lingering reminders of why this band was so good in the early days.
