As the darkness around us this days grows music has become my comfort and hope
FÖRGJORD -Laulu kuolemasta- DIGITAL, LP, CD (Werewolf)
Finnish Black metal in the ugliest and most sinister way possible this seems to be the fourth release by them and 1st on Werewolf label. This has that nasty 90's lo fi element were it sounds like it was recorded by generators on a 4 Track and the Vocals shrieked in to a CB mic. There are tons of punk and hardcore vibes coming through out this with enough static and noise as well to make you think there is no budget but I think Forgjord are fooling us all and this was very much done on purpose as it makes the album sound all the more unsettling and unrelentingly savage. There is so much Burzum and Early Mayhem love going on here it just makes it all the more sweet to listen too. Forgjord is intoxicating for a raw lo fi Black metal fan . Those guitar tones, frantic drums and crys out in torment from the vocals. You really can not ask for more. There are some very smart arrangements going on to with an almost theatrical or carnival atmosphere. Do not take this album lightly and it has many twists and turns and becomes addictive if you let it.
