Both bands featured on this split need little introduction among fans of Martial Folk/Industrial, each band comes with 3 new and exclusive tracks (so far).

The album opens with Von Thronstahl, the first two tracks can fit into a similar description, a sequel of what they did on "Imperium Internum" military inspired neo classical epic with minor industrial beats that should apeal to fans Puissance or the more melodic songs of Wappenbund; followed by Russian Traditional song whose original name wasn't readable.

The Second part of the split shows a different facet from The Days of the Trumpet Call (at least from what I know), melancholic, with acoustic and electric guitars and neo classical synths, germanic voice samples and a woman speaking in Russian creates a great atmosfere, hard to trace a paralel.

There are only two problems with this album, first it's only 22 minutes long, and makes you frustrated desiring more of this great piece, and second they are charging a full length price for it.
