Not sure if I will get it but thinking of it. Will probably give the Tales cd another spin before I decide.
Highly suggest you order it man. It's got Privilege of Evil at the end on the re-issue and is first-rate death metal in my opinion.

Black metal is significantly more diverse than any other style of metal and it isn't even something that can be argued.
Agree with the first paragraph wholeheartedly. On the second, I'd say, death metal is up there too.
