Istårn - Downfall Of The Gods Ep 2011




According to the facebook profile they play "True Norwegian Black Metal".
But as I listen to the opening track it's obvious that there are very much thrash influences here.
At least musically speaking,especially the guitar riffs & song structure.

Listening to the second track I'm somewhat surprised as Istårn actually manage to create some good acoustic parts both on guitar and bass before they continue in a quite fast tempo,with a catchy lead guitar throughout the song. The vocal parts on the refrain part on "Fountain Of Frozen Blood" Is something I find quite enjoyable and suits the track very well.

The other part of the EP contains 2 tracks "Istårn" and the title track "Downfall Of The Gods. The first one starts of with a cool fuzzy guitar/bass riff and slowly builds up.

"Downfall Of The Gods" Starts with a real thrash riff and is probably the fastest track on this release,and agin I have to say that I really enjoy the way the make the mid-parts in the track which is extremely catchy with some "clean" vocals & some whispering.

The production is overall quite good and I think these guys can get far in the future.
A full-length is set to be released in early 2012.

Dauden - Promo


Dauden - Promo

Black Metal .Sarpsborg, Norway

This act is actually from 2005,but was new to me until I heard some tracks of their latest promo.
Straightforward black metal is what we get here and this actually sounds like it as well, compared to many others labeling themselves the same term.
It's very tight and well played tracks you get here.
It's mostly fast all the way but slows down with some meoldic parts in beetween.
My favourite right now is "Forbannet Til Evig Jord"
This band has all the right elements combined to make something big in the future.
Don't miss out on this act if you like raw black metal.
I Haven't heard all the tracks yet,this is based upon the two tracks I've heard so far.

Note : This band is conformed to play at Hammerslag Vinterblot Festival 2012 Toghether with other great acts such as Nidingr & Ragnarol amongst others and Dark Mental Festival i Danmark 18.mai... Don't miss your chance to see this band live if you have the opportunity!

Morbid - 1987 - Year Of The Goat


I got hold of this compilation some months ago.
It's nicely packaged in a cardboard box with cool artwork & pictures.
Inside you get a book which also is the cover of the 2 CD's inside.

Disc 1: - Contains the legendary December Moon" demo & 6 rehearsal tracks.

Disc 2: - Contains 19 Live tracks performed at Birkagården & Ultra

This is something everyone into metal should check out,cause the material on it especially the "December Moon" demo will stand forever as a piece of extreme music history. And it's great to have it all in one compilation instead of 50 bad bootlegs!
Also the material on "December Moon" is so great and timeless in my opinion that it easily chrush a lot of releases today,both music wise & same goes for the production.
I really enjoyed reading the book while listening to the music which is written from a totally different perspective than I've read or heard before.
It's more about how Dead's friends knew him before he joined Mayhem and how he developed as an artist & person in general.
There's of course some funny/classic stories and lots of pictures & stuff never seen before.
Personally I have to say that I prefer the things Dead recorded with Morbid rather than the stuff with Mayhem!
The sick "sing along" vocals on "Disgusting Semla" is absolute worth a listen if you haven't heard it before.

I'm glad I bought this & have it in my collection!!

Beginning immediately after the devastation of 2010’s NWN! Fest, NWN! and Iron Bonehead sought to replenish the arsenal for the next assault. In order to ensure the same level of quality that has characterized the previous fests, it was decided that there would be no fest in 2011. Next year, however, NWN! fest will return with a lineup that exceeds all expectations. The fest will feature many veterans of the first line of the NWN! infantry including Ares Kingdom, Morbosidad, Embrace of Thorns, Dead Congregation, Proclamation, Blasphemophagher, and Black Witchery as well as new death squad recruits like Bunkur, Anatomia, Demonomancy, Wrathprayer, Adorior, Perversor, Pseudogod, Knelt Rote, and Bestial Raids. Among the acts topping the bill on each of the three nights will be NWN! mainstays Abigail, Revenge, and Sabbat. Special sets are being planned for two of the most savage of the NWN! mercenary division. Rotting Christ will play a set dedicated to their earlier work featuring only material from “Thy Mighty Contract” and earlier in honor of their upcoming release of early demo and EP material on NWN!.

They've released great acts such as Eljudner,Beyond Dawn,Universe 217,Lydia Laska & Inferno to name a few.
Now Demonhood Productions is started as well and has released great acts Vithr,Vetter and more.
I got a sampler from them last year,here you'll find almost every genre there is in metal more or less.
