RockmusicRaider Review - Carpe Noctem - Vitrun - Album CoverAre you in the mood for some harsh metal? The mood to face the terrors of the underbelly of the metal multiverse?

If so, take the black door to your left. The one that leads to the square with the blood-red columns, where the cold wastes start and the terrifying winds blow.
