The rough-mix tracks on their myspace are freakin awesum!!! Especially "Ghosting", it reminds me of "Sign Of An Open Eye" or "An Excerpt Of X". BUT BETTER!! Was so bummed to find out Shaggy would be doin vocals for this record, then heard it in action, i was mistaken.

It seems Shagrath only blows d***balls on his own stuff. But will this top the new Gorgoroth record? Probably not. INFERNUS AND PEST RULE!! AND GAAHL SUCKS!! LITERALLY!!

Did I mention that "Quantos Possunt ad Satanitatem Trahunt" is the best record of 2009? (cept maybe for "Gin") Well it is. And based on what we've all heard of "The Underworld Regime", it WILL be a major contender in 2010. Screw you "kvlt" fags, this is brilliant, atmospheric black metal. And you'll really enjoy it, though you won't tell anyone in fear of feeling like you've "sold yourself out". Homos. I actually like to hear the guitar work in my BM. Deathspell still rules tho, bring on the new record. Chaining the Katechon is freakin amazing
