NORDWITCH
NORDWITCH
Mřrk Profeti
(Satanath Records)
38:18min

The Ukraine's NORDWITCH has only been around since 2015 and already released their first full-length "Mørk Profeti". That didn't take long. And the album sounds more like a band that's been together for a few years. To be honest, the first time listening to this, I had no idea that the vocals were by female growler Masha. Her deep Death Metal vocals are like that of a possessed Valkyrie. The almost three-minute intro to the album is an instrumental which signifies the tone the album is portraying... not too aggressive, but not too mellow. More of a mid-tempo number stuttering into the second track 'Dominion' which picks up the pace a little with its galloping rhythms. The chugging guitars of 'Walker From The Shade' lead into a building crescendo of epic proportions. 'Lady Evil' throws a little progressive elements into the mix before smoothing out into a steady rhythm of classic Metal. However, 'The Call To An Ancient Evil', while actually a good song, still sort of keeps the album moving in an even direction. Unlike bands like ARCHGOAT or other completely different genres which need that same feel to the songs, NORDWITCH's style tends to suggest more, but never really jumping into the fire. The album needs a little "umph" to it to really get our attention. The acoustic guitars at the beginning of 'To Norse Gods' leading to a solid almost Power Metal style change it up slightly. 'Infernum Manifesto' speeds it up a tad, but levels off shortly thereafter. The final track 'Messiah Of Death' kicks it into gear more than the others to wrap the album up nicely. Though not a swift kick in the nuts as I like to get while listening to Metal, NORDWITCH's first full-length is a solid presentation, though a little uneventful at times. The band does show promise. And it's nice to know there are more female vocalists who can bust our chops with the best of them. For more information, check out: www.facebook.com/nordwitch, www.satanath.com
