yes anytime a new post metal band forms they are immediately deemed an isis, neurosis, or col rip-off depending on their orientation. But truly, with Signals from the Void, Huldra sounds more like ISIS than even ISIS has since releasing Panopticon
Call it imitation, an homage to the original, or downright theft; Huldra sound hauntingly similar to the Panopticon/Oceanic era Isis that we constantly have wet dreams about. Nothing new, but what they have done they've done perfectly. 4.0/5
With similar musical ties to Isis, Neurosis, and Russian Circles, Huldra still maintains a fresh feel to their approach. With mellow-darkened moods they progress well using piano build-up harmonies and crusty guitars that suck you in. There are even ambient-droning synths that serve as a backdrop to their post approach; adding greater variability. Their sense of proper dynamics is what really carries Signals. The sophisticated moods are a true delight. I have high hopes for what they might do in the future. Strong post-rock rec here seons.
