Thanks to Valan_SDM for the upload!
The very first effort from the legendary Dark Millennium, yours to download! This is basically a glorious prelude to the brilliance to follow in later years. It sounds a lot like Ashore the Celestial Burden, which really shouldn't come as much of a surprise, considering that was released just a year later. If anything, Christian's vocals on this release sound a little more intense and much faster. Not by much though.
Those delicious and engaging riffs are still present, and Black Literature has been split up into two separate songs. The last title track song is a monumental 12 minutes long and really seals the deal for this monstrous band. Dark Millennium is going down in the record books. Recommended.
