Four big songs make up this album. Queen Of The Borrowed Light needs no slow buildup, it just gets right into the heaviness. The first 5 minutes are really engaging black metal that I get lost in, before going into a softer instrumental section. Pretty good song all in all, it has one of my most liked qualities of black metal: being able to just get entranced by it.
Face In A Night Time Mirror (Part 1) has some nice female vocals, and carries on more of the same style as the first track. The mix is a little odd though, with entire frequency spectra disappearing and later reappearing. Face In A Night Time Mirror (Part 2) is a bit heavier than the first part, which is a lot of fun.
(A Shimmering Radiance) Diadem Of 12 Stars is a big frickin’ song, and it’s pretty neat. It doesn’t entirely set itself apart from the previous songs, but it’s not bad. I enjoy listening through this album, but I wouldn’t call it one of my favorites as only a little of it sticks with me.
Final Rating: 7.5/10
