WHOREDOM RIFE - DOMMEDAGSKVAD

Whoredom Rife - Dommedagskvad Dice 5

Terratur Possessions, early June 2017
Composer and musician V. Einride and his guttural companion K.R are back with their first full-length.
I've heard these doomsday-poems, or Dommedagskvad, a significant number of times, but I've been struggling finding the right words. I probably spent all clichés in the book in connection with the delightful EP The Worship of Idols Instead of God; Idolatry.
We're still talking adversarial loathing and merciless damnation, and although I might lean ever so slightly toward the EP, these diabolic poems have grown reluctantly strong.

DØDSENGEL - INTEREQUINOX

Dødsengel - Interequinox Dice 4

Debemur Morti Productions, 19.05.17
Five years after the previous album, time is finally ripe for a revisit by Dødsengel. The band hasn't been lazy, although they haven't been in a hurry either, but have rather spent a lot of time creating a strange work that combines eclectic black ingredients with a bizarre ethereal atmosphere.
The writing process started just after the release of Imperator (2012), and the recording started at the end of 2014. The results stands out a great deal from the majority and is worth the wait.
Welcome to Interequinox.

MYRKGRAV – TAKK OG FARVEL; TIDA ER BLITT EI ANNEN

Myrkgrav – Takk og farvel; tida er blitt ei annen Dice 5

Independent, 26.10.16 / Pest Productions, XX.07.17
To all appearances, Norwegian Glittertind has forsaken those who enjoy folk-metal, by developing to far from its roots. We still had Myrkgrav, though. Until Lars Jensen last fall announced the disbanding of his one-man band.
The title of the album translates to “Thank you, and farewell; times have changed”, and with this last regards, Myrkgrav dies out with the banner held high.
This is the last chapter in the saga of Myrkgrav. Released digitally over half a year ago, and scheduled to be released physically this summer.

STREAMS OF BLOOD - ULTIMATE DESTINATION MMXVII & ALLGEGENWÄRTIG

Streams of Blood - Ultimate Destination MMXVII & Allgegenwärtig Terningkast 4

Blasphemy Halls, 12.05 & Folter Records, 25.02.17
German Streams of Blood was formed in 2009, and has released three albums. We hereby take a closer look at the last two.

Allgegenwärtig was released a few months ago, and I've been spinning it quite a few time without putting anything on paper until now.
Ultimate Destination was released in February 2013, but was recently remastered and re-released.

Thus it's only natural I kill two birds with one stone.
