Capricornus - Alone Against All

One thing I never figured out about this album is why Capricornus decided to use a drum machine when he himself is a drummer.  He pounded the skins on some of the all time great Graveland records, so he obviously has the chops.  Oh well, some mysteries may just go unsolved.  One thing that isn't a mystery is how brilliant this record is.  Capricornus has crafted some epics based around enchanting guitar lines and, dare I say, sophisticated song structures.  It may be strange to call an album like this sophisticated when there's an angry mongrel guarding a doc marten on the cover, but songs like Rivers of Blood go down oh so smooth.
