From slow-motion doom escapades ("This Place Has Been Passed") to almost progressively rocking gimmicks embedded in sludge ("The Self-Made Man") to psychedelic blues à la Tom Waits ("The God In Ruins") - this sword is sharp. The album demands a lot of concentration. For 20 years Sami Albert Hynninen (Spiritus Mortis, The Puritan) alias Opium Warlords worked on the concept of "Taste My Sword Of Understanding". One can almost speak of a life's work.
