Even though it was only their second full-length, the album was showcasing an even more mature band with a personality of it's very own, still keeping the intricate song-structures, dark lyrical themes, unique riffing and both the brutal blasting parts and catchy melodies of their debut but pushing it all to the next level with a bit more progressive approach resulting in an even darker ambience and even more intricate structures. European tours and gigs with legends such as DEATH, GRAVE, SAMAEL, TIAMAT, UNLEASHED and more quickly ensued before Mercyless entered the studio again to record what would become the album's follow-up, 1996's "C.
