Quite a good record, first of Abbath's solo attempts. Haven't heard the other one yet, but this one I heard the day of its release. It's melodic, aggressive, cold, dark, violent, energetic, and makes for a good black metal album. The songs are, for the most part, pretty good. "To War" and "Winter Bane" are my favourites, they're really good. "Count the Dead" is another really solid track. Overall it's a good album, some highlights and few lows. I really like it. ... read more
It is raw and powerful and everything I expect from a Black Metal record and it does it well but does nothing exciting or intriguing to make me say that this is a great record. It is a solid Black Metal Album but brings nothing new to the table.

To War 7.5/10
Winter Bane 7/10
Ashes of the Damned 7/10

Eternal 7.5/10

Average: 7.3/10
Raw and packs a punch. However seems very underwhelming at times. This seems like the album that Abbath wished Immortal made. This brings nothing new that immortal hasn't started, he has just continued the same path under a new banner.
