Dark and ice cold - 80%

Taliesin, February 16th, 2006

Hypothermia deserves that name. The Swedish band creates dark music that feels like a cold night, when snow is slowly coming down and death comes near. This tape is made up of two long songs, equaling around 25 minutes. You won't really notice the lengths of the songs, as it seems to go by quickly. The songs are instrumental as well, which makes it even more difficult to grasp how they could keep your interest with what are minimalistic songs with no lyrics or vocals. And yet the band does keep your interest, and makes me feel like the life is slowly draining from my body.
The cold grim atmospheres of this tape will certainly appeal to any fan of depressive or suicidal black metal. The production is a bit distant feeling, but it only adds to the cold dead feeling of the material. This release is excellent for a two song demo, and it got me to order more of this bands material. I highly suggest it to fans of bands like Shining, Leviathan, Lycanthropy's Spell, Nargaroth, Wigrid, etc.
