Conservationist has a big thing about how it's going to suck, and/or sound like Venom (LOL irony), so of course he's going to jump on the first opportunity to say so.
From the samples, this is going to be fucking awesome. The vocals fit the "new sound", which I would say is almost something like Hvis Lyset Tar Oss + the best bits of Borknagar's first album, oddly. Tracks like Glemselens Elv, Keilohesten, and Morgenroede, are just... Even from the samples, they're some of the best bits of music I've heard. I'm literally choking on my own trachea, waiting for this.
