      Cronian's first album (2006).

      Borknagar have always been one of my favourite black metal bands, even as their style drifted increasingly away from the genre to the point that their last release was a disappointing album of entirely acoustic material that was arguably a long time coming. It shouldn't be a surprise to fans that this side project between band members Øystein G. Brun (guitar and fake drums) and Vintersorg (vocals, bass and keyboard) is less impressive than the more authentic Borknagar material of recent years, but it's still worth checking out for fans of the Vintersorg era, namely the 'Empiricism' and 'Epic' albums that present a more melodic and progressive sound.

      As a two-man project, there's an evident level of amateurishness here, most notably in the keyboards that sound like they've come from a black metal home demo, and while I'd normally find this added to the charm, the high production values and reputation of the performers demand something more. Vintersorg's keyboards are permitted to dominate far too often for his level of talent, being granted entire tracks in the form of 'Colures' and 'End(durance)- Part I,' the latter disappointingly promising a sequel at some point in the future, and even in the standard songs they're permitted to intrude far too frequently between the genuine metal displays that are similarly disappointing and not particularly heavy as fans might have hoped.
