Coming in this week with a devastating 1,817 votes! "Only black metal fans can understand when I say that this album is black metal 10,000% and as intense as symphonic black metal can get, and it’s fantastic.
Anno Diaboli’s “Morbid Dreams” is a brutal EP that absolutely just tears at your ears with its black metal that is hardcore in just about every single way it can be, and left someone like me who enjoys black metal literally clapping in approval.
This EP is definitely impressive for what it is and judging upon how well done it is, I can with complete confidence that whenever Anno Diaboli releases new material it will surely be something great." Vinterd – METAL ADDICTS
"Anno Diaboli sounds like a solid Russian answer to the Scandinavian scene with bands like Dimmu Borgir, Keep of Kalessin, and hell, German bands like Dark Fortress and alike. If you enjoy these bands, you will dig this EP." Tomislav Debelić – FESTCAMPER
"This EP should without a doubt whet the appetite and feed the soul with its building climax of pure symphonic structured black metal that houses a scintillating and riveting vocal with impressive melodies and thick dark rhythms that fluctuate demonically from gigantic to simple and raw.
Mentally this will leave you in a reflective mood and deceptively it does not make you want to reach for the razor blades in a bid to stem the depression. Its dark roots just fuel intensely to leave you wanting more. The fiery haunting keyboards give it a beautiful edge that is crisp and delightful whilst the guitars keep the compelling enthusiasm alive and the violin serves to give it that dramatic effect, adding in that scathing vocal and what you get here is a smouldering array of epic symphonic black metal with plenty of ravenous bites." Pagan Hel – BRUTALISM
