Mangog Awakens was well-received by doom metal fans. The band's heavy and powerful sound and melodic songs were particularly praised.
Despite being the band's debut album, Mangog Awakens occupies an important position in the doom metal genre. It is considered to be the album that marked the beginning of the band's successful career.
In 2021, a remastered version of Mangog Awakens was released to commemorate the band's 10th anniversary. This version includes two new tracks that were not included in the original version, "The Beast of the Apocalypse" and "The Call of the Void".
Mangog Awakens is a great album that I would recommend to fans of doom metal. If you want to experience the band's powerful and heavy sound, be sure to check out this album.
