AllMusic Review by

Here are two double-CD volumes documenting extreme and harsh sound. They're a challenge to get through. They also represent undoubtedly the blackest and most diabolical of what's out there on the dark, dark, dark fringes of metal. All the mainstays are represented, among them Emperor, Impaled Nazarene, Dark Funeral, Samael, Bestial Warlust, Hecate Enthroned, Destroyer 666, and more.
