Black metal is a nightmare genre to be interested in as there is so much to sift through that it is incredibly easy to be overwhelmed. This release cuts through the murk. Really unique songwriting that feels both traditional and forward thinking. The melodies have a downer beauty like The Cure while the overall sounds like something from the 2nd wave.
Favorite track: Wounded Rider.
PSA: if there was an album you heard a couple years ago and thought it was ok, listen to it again and you might love it.
That's what happened to me with this album. I cannot fathom why it didn't stick with me back then. Same thing happened with Decoherence's Unitarity for that matter. Matten
Researched Icelandic bands before being able to visit the country in 2019 and found primarily Misþyrming!!!! They reignited and intensified an existing ( and somewhat on the back burner at the time ) love of heavy music. Even listened on the flight there! I have gotten into a lot of great bands because of them. hellaganj2000
