Far Away From The Sun

Look at that castle, evil goes on in there, unparalleled evil, Swedish evil. Sacramentum is inside creating evil, evil with dual guitar harmonies, evil with blastbeats. That castle sits far away from the sun, squarely in 1995, a year of evil, Swedish evil. Just out of frame is another castle, Dissection's castle, a castle full of evil, Swedish evil. Sometimes Dissection's evil can be heard over at Sacramentum's castle, but Dissection doesn't care.

Thanks for this. I've often heard these guys talked about but never listened to them before.

Sometimes they send grim icy smoke signals over to Emperor's swordshaped Nightside castle in Norway, to invite them over for virgin sacrifices. Those fuckers never get back to them.

"Swedish evil" piqued my interest, and references to Dissection's castle closed the deal!

Is this their summer castle or main domicile?

Definitely Sacramentum's best record, and at very least, their most mournful sounding. However, I much prefer, or am rather obsessed with Nicholas' main project, RunemagicK. Of course, this might have something to do with the extent to which my mind has been fundamentally cannabinihilated.

Listen to RunemagicK! Prepare the flaming chalice of ascendancy for the black-charred soul bowl is leaving the mind behind in ashes...

Thanks dude. I almost think that even though Dissection built their castle first, these guys went higher up in the mountains to build an even mightier castle that in case of sunshine would have cast a shadow over Dissection's.
