This album is considered by crust punk fans to be the best release by Iskra up to date. No wonder, because the black metal influence on "Bring The War Home" isn't as big as on "Bureval" or on the self-titled album. And speaking of Against Empire, they're playing crustcore with thrash metal (not BM) overtones. So if you like crust more than black metal, this release is for you; if not, then you'd probably like "Bureval" much more.
