"How can all this be the product of one man's imagination?"

It's exactly what I thought and keep thinking when I listen this album. Genius.

"...is Black Metal's answer to Mozart, Beethoven and Wagner" Ignorance is a bless! Shit review although i like "Soliloquy of the Stigmatised Sheperd" as well...

I hear it all night long and I must say it really deserves to be the #1. Anyway the beginning of the review is still retarded.

I am enjoying this album immensely, this is beyond description indeed

This really paints a vivid picture in my mind while listening to it, far more so than anything else I have listened to within the genre of black metal. The fact that Ruins of Beverast is just one person project really is unbelievable. I'm going to check out other albums by this musician/artist. Alexander Mielenwald? I salute you.

I listened to this album for the first time about a week ago, and I can't seem to stop playing it nonstop. This is some of the most well composed and emotionally draining music I have ever heard.

This is the best?

Actually a fantastic album. But you have to preparew yourself with plenty of ambient black metal in advance, then give this one a few spins.

Only then will you be rewarded. An amazing listen.

Couldn't agree more. There is just something mysterious about this album, his work in general.

Still perfect after hundret times of listening. Really, nothing compares to rain upon the impure. Its atmosphere is unbeatable!

Disappointing and I still can't delve into it completely regardless of how hard I try.

Rain Upon The Impure deserved to be the best black metal album because it simply amazing album from the atmospheric, dark, mysterius feeling and amazing through long journey of a record.
A genius one man project by von Meilenwald.

By the way, what black metal bands or albums do you like Bamahammer and Marcos?

Pretty boring album, really. I wouldn't listen to it again. I have no idea where these high ratings come from but don't kid yourselves, this is not the best black metal album, not even close.

Hail! Hail to this album.This album is really monumental behemoth.
Creating a superb atmospheric dimension that make listener enjoying to the end. Rain Upon the Impure is The most eerie album i've ever heard and the best Black Metal Album.

Best, really? Quite boring

‹‹ #27 ›› By brian on 23rd Jun, 2015 @ 2:41 GMT

Answer to Mozart, Beethoven and Wagner? I think not. This does not even come close to those composers. Don't be so god damned ignorant.

On this review i went out and got this album and by the 3rd track i was indeed in 'Rapture' bloody brilliant .

‹‹ #29 ›› By JF on 15th Feb, 2016 @ 16:41 GMT

Still unbeaten?

The best album?

‹‹ #31 ›› By Dunkelheit on 13th Aug, 2016 @ 20:38 GMT

Although an un-conventional starter, this was the first black metal album I ever listened to attentively. Its a black abyss in the form of music, and truly one of the most befittingly 'atmospheric' BM albums out there. Its not for everyone, but I do applaud it being chosen as no. 1

‹‹ #32 ›› By Anti on 5th Oct, 2016 @ 4:46 GMT

This needs a vinyl release, not to sound like a hipster. I want the purest sound for this album.

‹‹ #33 ›› By Odine on 6th Oct, 2016 @ 12:31 GMT

It has a vinyl release. Look on Discgogs.

Yo, Ruins of Beverast, I'm really happy for you, I'ma let you finish, but Taake has the best album of all time! The best album of all time! Hordalands Doedskvad!

People here like to overrate this album, don't they?



It's not that good people, calm down.

This album obviously appeals to a lot of people, and maybe it does deserve to be first in some sort of universe, but I just don't see it.
It's a very impressive album, no doubt about it, but for me personally it just doesn't grab me. In fact, despite the many different movements and moments, I find it all a bit unexciting. I'll make sure I come back to it from time to time though because it's a huge work to unpack.

‹‹ #45 ›› By titanite shard on 7th Mar, 2019 @ 15:29 GMT

Wow it's been awhile since I've visited and impure is still no.1
This is a great album no doubt and I've listened many times but I feel a couple of tracks could have been trimmed so the album length comes in between 40-50 mins.
Nice vocals on this.

‹‹ #47 ›› Reply to #45 by Imperator on 28th Mar, 2019 @ 18:34 GMT

Well, one thing to take into consideration is that we haven't rated or reviewed any albums for about 6 years. When we get back in gear, this album might finally be dethroned.

‹‹ #48 ›› By Titanite Shard on 1st Apr, 2019 @ 14:31 GMT

Six years! well that would account for it.
Hey don't get me wrong I'm not saying it does not deserve no.1
I can see why this album is top and it's the best Beverast album by far for me.
It really is a skull crusher and may not be dethroned.
