There were also a few subtle electronic elements on the album which I liked--like in "The Sign of the Trident", I think, there's this low, electronic pulse during one of the verses that I thought added to the music.
In the video for Black Crow on a Tombstone, Satyr looks likes he is impersonating a Christopher Walken, Ihsahn, and Elvis love-child. I mean, he cut his hair...he looked pretty badass in the Pentagram Burns video....now he looks lame.
