Mandatory purchase, and here's hoping for an LP version (or tape reissue) in due course. "Black Powder and Ravens' Blood" is just the sort of album I reach for from DtB's impressive repertoire, and in general terms it's a compelling mixture of aggression, atmosphere, and tight songwriting. In my opinion, it's almost perfectly paced, and holds up well to repeated listens. Manages to hit a point somewhere among nostalgia, melancholy, and bitter determination which I feel suits the subject matter perfectly.
