NIDINGR - THE HIGH HEAT LICKS AGAINST HEAVEN

Nidingr - The High Heat Licks Against Heaven Dice 4

Indie Recordings, 10.02.17

Prologue

Nidingr ain't exactly in a hurry. Fair enough, quality over quantity is always preferable. It's been five years since the guys from South/East Norway released new material. They've therefore never graced this site before. We may thus just as well start off with a short warm up consisting of a swift run through the band's history.
It was started as a solo project in 1992, and released the first demo in 1996. Already then as a full band.

WIEGEDOOD - DE DODEN HEBBEN HET GOED II

Wiegedood - De Doden Hebben het Goed II Dice 4

Consouling Sounds, 10.02.17
One shouldn't judge a book by its cover. But one might as well give it a shot. Wiegedood would take who ever attempts it by surprise anyway. The cover primarily suggest atmospheric black metal, possibly a one-man band, perhaps from the states... One could speculate indefinitely, but the Belgian trio would just shake their heads and smiled mysteriously.
Wiegedood, Belgian for Sudden infant death syndrome, started in 2014 and debuted the following year with De doden hebben het goed (The dead are fine / feel good) to honours and ovations, from what I've observed.

RITUALIZATION - SACRAMENTS TO THE SONS OF THE ABYSS

Ritualization - Sacraments to the Sons of the Abyss Dice 4

Iron Bonehead, 03.02.17
After having dwelt in the fetid underground, six feet beneath the most heinous and depraved subsoil for over 10 years, French Ritualization are ready to drop their debut Sacraments to the Sons of the Abyss.

The album is a dirty, infected manifesto of foul and bestial death metal, not intended for the faint of heart.

Brutal pace and raw, infernal downpour is the recipe the guys swear to when they launch a sonic attack with blasphemous lethal lust.
