Christian _lvestam's statement about DEATH MEDITATIONS: "For me "Death Meditations" represents everything that is Torchbearer - Speed! Power! Melody! Aggression! All wrapped up in a striking production and marked by the philosophy of Hagakure ! To me "Death Meditations" is the ultimate Torchbearer experience - so far!"
For fans of Satyricon, Dissection, Troll and Arcturus. Furious blackish metal, blended with Swedish death metal.
