This is the first Karnak release dated 1997 and also the first professional recording I made.
The songs are heavily influenced by the mainstream tech and brutal acts of that times like Morbid Angel, Suffocation, Pestilence, Death and many others, but still a personal sound is present, thanks to the great work of Ivan Rassu on the fretless bass and the first appearance of synthesizers here and there.
The album was initially recorded by Seby Dimartino (who later became vocalist for the band) and then mixed at Fear Studio, and then completely revamped by me some years later.
Some of the best guitar solos I did so far are present in this album.
- Hatred Within
- Wings Of Destiny
- The Rapture Of Cremation
- Shroud For Jesus
- Magnify The Absolute Maledicent
- In Silence
- Estrangement Of Hesitation
