NORDAFROST
NORDAFROST
North Arise
(Heavy Horses Records)
40:09min

Frosty Black / Death Metal from Germany offers this young band on its debut full-length after releasing only one demo, the already very promising and professional produced MCD "Dominus Frigoris" in 2003. Grim vocals comparable to later IMMORTAL, cold and melancholic moods Swedish Black / Death spawned in the 90s, aggressive fast drumming and a mixture of epic melodies and thrashing riffs that never loses its driving power should be a sufficient definition of NORDAFROST's sound. Production-wise you get a crisp and clear yet heavy sound that offers not a single weak spot, absolutely flawless! The only thing I dislike are the growls in 'An Apocalyptic Philosophy' and 'Dungeons', they are a bit out of place and don't really fit into the NORDAFROST-sound. Fortunately these are only two songs out of a total of ten and with the atmospheric icy hymn 'On The Shores Of Grey' or powerful, rousing tracks such as 'My Sun' or 'Ruler Of A Bleak Realm' NORDAFROST should capture the interest of anybody into well-crafted down-to-earth Black / Death without any musical or image-extravaganzas. Visit the bands website www.nordafrost.de or the one of the label www.heavyhorsesrecords.de to find out more about this talented act and download some appetizers...
