I'd like to share with you the sounds from my new album with my pagan black metal
It is available as both :
- a Free Download
- and as a strictly limited CD Edition for CD collectors from that link :
This concept album is based on a real Icelandic saga
composed around 1300 A.D., and evoking older events related to the King Hjørleif.
The lyrics are in Old Norse
and derived from the very saga, which happens to be the language that used to be spoken by the Vikings.
As you can see from the link above, this opus, which got released on November 14th, has already received a bunch of pretty good reviews.
To quote for instance the article from Chronicles of Chaos
(8/10 rating) :
The sound and style are both seldom found on contemporary recordings, based on an aesthetic that belongs to the second wave of Scandinavian black metal -- as a reference point you could consider the earliest recordings by Hades, Borknagar, Kampfar and Ulver as the band's influences. The album mixes atmospheric guitar-driven, fast-strummed sections with acoustic guitar folk-oriented interludes, and the riffs all bear a sting of familiarity, rekindling the fires of black metal's finest hours dating back to the early-mid 1990s.
You can stream the full CD from the album page
, and as I mentioned before it's also available for free download in case you prefer mp3s !
Let me know what you think guys
