Song lyrics on the album cover death and occult themes, while the production has a very strong, powerful, heavy and brutal sound where you can hear all of the musical instruments that are present on the recording with the songs being very long and epic in length.
In my opinion Beyond are a very great sounding hybrid of brutal death and war metal and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Merciless At Heart" "Fatal Power Of Death" and "Consuming Black Void". RECOMMENDED BUY.
