A bunch of Aussies who are part groove, part kvlt and above all furious. This record often invokes imagery of Shiva for me. The transformer dancing and thus bringing about the end of the world. Dancing to the early grave. That is Pagan! https://embed.spotify.com/?uri= spotify:track:4NyQ0OXI7INpOw4xV0lkYU Frostpunk A pressing, heavy and sweeping soundtrack with uttermost tragic strings in front. The music chugs industrious as the generator would, but when that beat stops sorrow creeps up to the edges and foul cold wind blow it over, freezing it to death. Intense, tragic, melancholic. https://embed.spotify.com/?uri= spotify:track:2cGrJoPgxcv5u5hJDN8bUf Dionysus I understand this Dead Can Dance 'rivival' is a letdown for some due to the direction taken, but as a newcomer to this party I absolutely love it! The thick layer of atmosphere in the sound creates a warm mystical soundscape which intrigues the listener.It's tribal, folky, mysterious, colorful and energetic. https://embed.spotify.com/?uri= spotify:track:6y1hWuNQjq0x4qqVqfpp1Q Dead Magic Haunting indie/blues/rock/noise. Especially the vocal performance on 'The Mysterious Vanishing of Electra' is so eeriely good, it pierces my nerves and shivers my spine. Who is she? Who is she to say goodbye?! https://embed.spotify.com/?uri= spotify:track:3G6GyqFWk4N2n3fMQ1dZuC De Oord , De Oord is a short but intense split demonstrating both bands finest work to date. Bleak but groovy riffs supported by menacing blastbeats and spine-chilling screams telling a tales of two rivers. The fact that two rivers can inspire such masterpieces is telling for the creative force in both bands. https://embed.spotify.com/?uri= spotify:track:4Dv7wcrSlcGW4aldxQSIyF Hugsjá This record finally does what I always hoped Wardruna and/or Skuggsja would do; create the heavy dark folk atmosphere of Wardruna with the structures and melodies of Enslaved. It is by far the best horse in the Einar/Ivar stable so far. Get ready to close your eyes and get goosebumps all over. https://embed.spotify.com/?uri= spotify:track:1MqggQYTi7hA55AUACOVMx Møl Jord does what Deafheaven does, but with a bit more dynamics in the songwriting. Expect colourful shredding guitars, pumping riffs and melodic breaks covered with gnarly screams. Every second of this record shows an idea, and most of them are very very interesting. https://embed.spotify.com/?uri= spotify:track:1bIKWCtkPqMtkt3i2Gi6kK With Doom We Come Summoning does as Summoning is. No need to expect groundbreaking material, but no fan wants that. We want Summoning to be the sure footing in a rapid changing blackmetal scene. More of the same epic Tolkien metal. Some most memorable songs of their discography and some more than welcome filler.
