Review


Second album for Belgian band Heimat. I thought I was familiar with this band, but it turns out I was thinking of Heiden, who are not the same. This is a Pagan/Black Metal band of the sort that used to turn up all the time on Oakenshield like 10 years ago. Considering I enjoy this kind of non-folky pagan stuff, I am pleased by that.

Heimat work a muscular, gritty guitar sound and some basic but infectious riffs that gives their music an energetic, propulsive sound. I am strongly reminded of bands like Berserk or maybe Blodsrit in the loose arrangements, hooky riff-work, and unbridled aggression. There's nothing new about this, and if you want folk in your Pagan Metal then you will be disappointed, but if you miss the old days of Himinbjorg and bands of that ilk you will be as pleased by this as I am. Worthy.
