4.0 excellentBedex | July 12th 19

Absolutely amazing black metal. Would be in 4.5 range if it weren't for the vocals which I found
frankly quite horrendous most of the time. It is one thing to sound inhuman and despaired, it's
another to sound like field recording of evil sick burping babies. The instrumentals on the other
hand are out of this world and make every single track a jam. I love the unique gnarly,
aggressive, noisy, droney almost tone the band creates. It has horror and bleak feels, but also a
sort of emo feel at times - not sound, juts the emotion of it. An instrumental version of this
would nearly be a potential classic - the record is extremely strong, cohesive and unique, not
too long to bore but long enough to thoroughly entertain. 4.22

4.5 superbTheSpirit CONTRIBUTOR | June 13th 19

This year for black metal is what last year was for death metal. There is not a day that goes by that I don?t discover something killer. In particular the Icelandic scene. I?ve waxed on about it a lot recently, but it just keeps delivering and at an inhuman pace. My latest discovery is the band Anvald. They definitely have elements of the Reykjavk sound, but instead of the usual blastbeat intensity they slow things down to a crawl, allowing their creepy, dissonant sounds to worm their way into your head and make camp. Highly recommended.

Another band showing the unbelievable strength of the icelandic bm scene. No coincidence that DG of misthyrming has his hand in yet another masterful album.
