Album Notes
Slechtvalk is one of the most promising Dutch dark/black metal bands of the moment. Named after the fast and bloodthirsty bird of prey, the band knows how to give a recognizable sound to their music. Slechtvalk combines the bombastic parts of Dimmu Borgir with the venomish parts of Dark Funeral, but has also the catchy parts of the old After Forever. A strong mix that convinces both friend and enemy.

Powerplay Magazine:
…For once, here is an epic black metal band who - rather than mess around with over brutal arrangements, orchestras and prog rock stylings - simply concentrate on writing tight, focused and highly enjoyable songs…
8/10(Mark Freestone / United Kingdom)

Vampire Magazine:
…This is one of the advantages the band has on many other bands from the genre; the musicians are very good, yet they play not over the top; they play for the sake of the composition…
(John Notten / Holland)

...Dark and black metal fans that like emotion, melody and grimness: this album was made for you. You can love them and you can hate them, but Slechtvalk will continue their haunt for your dark soul… they already have mine…
8/10(Pieke / Holland)

This is a great cd it has a lot of symphonic stuff but it flawlessy interwines it with black and viking metal.
