ymir forges a perfect epitaph for these convulsive pandemic times ... epic black metal songs of a feeling from the 90s transferred to this pestilential present, an authentic ceremony of death ... true!!!
What an album! Riff piles on riff to unleash blistering madness. This is supposed to be a one-man project? I am deeply impressed. I praise the internet every day because it makes it possible to identify gems like this all over the world. E_H
I would describe HAVUKRUUNU's new album as "typically Finnish". Not only because of the Finnish lyrics, also the anthemic pagan black metal reminds me at Finnish masters like Moonsorrow. "Uinuos Syömein Sota" is majestic and melodic and it offers some piercing traditional guitar passages and heroic chorusses. Check "Kunnes Varjot Saa", a catchy and powerful track which contains all the strengths described. Last but not least: This album spreads positive vibes despite all aggressive elements! H.L.
