Rated 3.8/5 (76%) (5 Votes)
I enjoyed this band's Oathbreaker album back in 2014, so I was happy to get this one. Overall, I find it enjoyable, but not as consistent as the album that came before it. Hoth are clearly branching out into different sounds, experimenting with more clean singing and an almost melodeath feel to some of the riffing. There is a definite Immortal vibe going on in places, with the upfront rasp of the vocalist and the lyrics about frozen wastelands and evil wizards. When the riffs are heavy and chunky, I enjoy this more than when it gets more accessible-sounding. This album is much more varied than its predecessor, but it sounds like a band in transition who are still figuring out what they want to be.
