The organ tune makes a return later, this time under blasts, followed by a breakdown with militant drumming, all combining to leave a positive impression that this album may not be as repetetive as it may perhaps have seemed after the first song.
The final track W mglistej konstelacji lodu is a long one, beginning with a nice floating mid-tempo riff easing the song in, before a brief keyboard segment bridges into the first fast section. Arkona's style works quite well in a song this long, as the tempo fluctuations as well as a production in which you can hear them clearly avoid any monotony. There is a rare breakdown in the central section before the song powers to an ambient fadeout.
While the raw style coupled with subtle sympho keyboard use may sound strange, they combine very well due to Arkona's decision to use them sparingly, and to add body to the music rather than force it along or rely on it to provide the main features of interest. Any solo keyboard passages end very quickly indeed, being used either as intros, or for seconds long at most calms in the storm. The sound of them is also suitably "cold", so they don't risk sounding completely comedic. The probable drum machine turns out not to be a problem, as the song writing was engaging enough to make me focus on the overall music rather than superficial instrument sounds.
Overall this is well produced and crafted black metal with a decent understanding of the principles of good song writing - it is heavy, but also successfully mixes the formula up a little, and includes enough features of interest in their formula to warrant attention.
