Review


Naglfar is a band that has been around for almost 10 years now in one form or another. They started in 1992 with the name Uninterred but soon changed the name to Naglfar. The band has a revolving door of members throughout their career, which seems to be quite the norm for the black/death metal scene. The constant change in line-ups hasn't seemed to hurt this band however as although this is just an EP it is very good.

This is some very well written black/death metal with melody similar to Diabolical Masquerade although not as experimental. This EP contains 2 new tracks; a cover of Massacre's "Dawn of Eternity" and 2 tracks from the 7" "When Autumn Storms Come" The cover is extremely well done and the originals are all excellent. The songs start out exactly as what you would expect from this genre but there are twists and turns that really hold your interest. I will admit that most of this is pretty brutal but they have really managed to stay brutal without forsaking melody. The vocals are your standard sound for this genreā€¦neither bad nor good, pretty much like everyone else but the musicianship is definitely better than average.

I am certainly not an expert in this genre but I think if the up coming full -length is as good as this EP that bodes very well for fans of this genre as well as for Naglfar themselves. Recommended.
