Nice to finally own this. Great demo too, I feel it’s been overshadowed by Burning Spears… & Heir of Ecliptical Romanticism but this one, along with Melancholy Howls, are in my opinion the material LoM founded himself on. r3tkon
"Though a bit of a challenge upon a first impression, Mirror In Darkness is an album that ultimately rewards multiple plays, as each subsequent listen allows the multiple layers of the songwriting to sink in better."

Revenant Marquis continues with the subterranean vocals on this album. Percussion sound on all tracks has a very large sound, especially the bass drum. Guitar is generally very clean. The more I listen, the more I get Xasthur vibes, but with a more rock and roll influence. Still very depressive and chaotic. A cool album! QQBeastMode
Can you have your black metal with no moronic samples, with guitars downtuned to drill holes in your very self, hypnotizing bass lines, drums that are something more than blast beats and vocals that don't need to be soaked in reverb, and on top of it fast, melodic, headbanging and catchy?
p.s. my grandma used to say: never judge a metal album by its intro. YomaBarr
