Norrsköld – Withering Virtue – The Second Chapter


The opening folk-style melody that begins Everfrozen is the perfect start to an album that is filled with an ear pleasing blend of death/black & folk elements. Slipping seamlessly into a glorious sounding beat, the guitar work combined with the frantic drumming really ensures a breathless start. Songs like Feed the Ground, Fallen One & Impurity really showcase a style of metal that is both ferociously heavy but with catchy riffs & soaring moments. It’s the sort of stuff that makes you want to raise your fist high in the sky in tribute. Exciting but familiar.
