Album Reviews

Minas Morgul on their seventh album “Heimkehr” tackles modern symphonic gimmicks to enhance the composition.

The Stone’s latest output is, without doubt, one of the worthy albums I’ve heard this year, the Slavic quintet has brought a mesmeric and aggressive musical work full of hooks and melodies.

“Ôfstân” is far from an average black metal album and I highly recommend this album to fans of pagan black metal.

‘Heldentod’ offers a most memorable album where the music mesmerizingly fuses the grim elements of nineties black metal.

“Ödhin” is by far the best output of Bhleg, combining mystical pagan folk melodies with pure Scandinavian black metal.

‘Ymir’ maintains a thin line between pagan melodic and atmospheric black metal. The songs are built on classic tremolo-picked riffs displayed amid a flurry of blast beats.

Vikings and black metal go hand in hand. It just works. Don’t believe me? Here’s Havukruunu to prove me right.

Árstíðir Lífsins return once again to take you on a long journey to the cold misty lands of Scandinavia.

Mohngang is epic in scope and its melodies often reach the fantasy realm of pagan black metal.

Adraestia “Αδράστεια” has many layers like the rhythm guitar and the driven melodies, the vocals delivery also has many different pitches and they fuse quite well with the music.
