Ten years has passed since the last album by Greeks but it was certainly worth to wait for their thrid full-lenght release. Maybe  looking at 'Intensity' by the passing time you can easily tell that it wasn't their most successful stuff. Especially if you going to compare it to 'Magick Chaos Psychodelia' which in my opinion is the most brighter work so far. Well, I think I saw this coming while the two splits from 2010 with Burial Hordes, Angstridden, Devathorn and from 2012 with Burial Hordes showed their new face and huge potential within the progress during the years of 'half-dormancy'. Also the founder of Enshadowed, N.E.C.R.O. changed the line-up and maybe that is the part of the key issue. The only trace of old spirit is the drumer Impaler who helped in studio to record drums. Anyway, from the visual side to music with soul feeding atmosphere, this album is as I said worth your money to get it and be a part of this ceremony. Inside the booklet drawings on each left side while on right you've got lyrics. Exception here are the central pages with photos with members of Enshadowed. Music here can be easily described as advanced Black Metal and listening to it I sense ease in ability to transform the Magic and spiritual temple rites into sound of their music. It's hard to define but they managed to merge with such simplicity the ideology and music to one dimension. Many, many bands are just trying to do so even with advanced wisdom lyrics but they just try. Here the result is astonishing with its easiness and complete. Music itself is very periphastic, but on the other hand the aura and flow of the album make it so welcomed to listen (do not take it as they are rock-stars and main stream idiots). Many pace changes, patterns are very often unpredictable and all in all the music is very dynamic even it is Orthodox in its meaning. Guitars work is breath taking, the aura that you are in the middle of something unreal, simply like Magick Chaos Psychodelia. Vocals by Serpent are possessed and his scale of forming his voice to different parts is amazing, from screams to growls, agonasing groans, wild, demented Third Eye absolution. Buy it in any form you can and support this underground act!
