King Of Asgard – :taudr:

kingasgard.jpg

As ever, the component instrumentation of :taudr: is executed proficiently. Generally, there’s a good duality of sawing, tremolo-picked guitars to generate intensity and atmosphere with chunkier riffs for groove and melody. For example, the lead on the title track has a definite swing and the riff around 2:30 on “The Curse and the Wanderer” has a cool upwards inflection, among other neat moments. Mimicking this, there’s also a satisfying duality in the vocals which split harsh rasps and Viking-style chants. The chanted melody on “Death… and a New Sun” is fairly catchy and the call-and-response chorus on “… For the Fury of the Norse” is a highlight of the EP.
