I wonder if anyone else feels that DDtM excelled in technique and content (and the integration of both), but suffered from a badly composed general flow. As in: too many tracks, too little progression. Not that there was no progression of ideas - quite the contrary, though it wasn't the perfect minimalism of HLTO, which condensed the important stuff into four songs. On Engram, Laiho seems to have tidied it up and juxtaposed Burzumic/synth pieces with some good old Beherit hyperblast onslaught.
Concerning the previous two full-lengths, ASBO made a good point by noticing that those albums represent two disparate moods. Two different languages, I'd say, given that EDS sounds like a more concise version of the Future Sound of London's "Dead Cities" (which admittedly came out a year later, so I'm just comparing atmospheres here), while H418ov21.C lingers on subtle aural progressions which sound like a soundtrack to an abstract movie about transmutation and astral journeys.
