A quite lengthy release from Naakhum, which is currently his latest album. Even though the quality of production is still far from perfect, it has improved significantly since the release of "2012: Dawn of Fate Frequency" and the 1st part of "Backward in the Times", and of course, Naakhum deserves to be respected for being able to create rich and insteresting music while his technical abilities apparently are limited. The lyrical themes remain the same: mysterious facts and incidents, ancient civilizations and pagan myths. One can argue that Naakhum is just a clone of Senmuth (both musically and conceptually), but even it's close to truth, there aren't many projects like this, that really stand out from thousands of generic metal bands.
