Ukrainian Blackened Death Metallers NordWitch are inspired by ancient Scandinavian mythology; you know, coldness, mysteries, myths and such things are naturally a great source of inspiration for many.

Right off the bat, it needs to be said that this extreme Ukrainian horde kicks some serious ass (for lack of better words), no matter how overused and cliché this phrase may sound to some of you. NordWitch's technical, multilayered, punchy and simply well executed Blackened Death Metal (and at times even kind of thrashy) does not just pass you by as there is plenty here to grab your attention. It's just too good to be ignored, having nearly top-notch compositions that reek of true professionalism and amazing musicianship. It's also hard to believe those ominous, low grunts come from the lungs of a woman. Masha sounds more convincing than many of her comrades in the same field, so by all means take notes and learn something from her vocal abilities.

Technically speaking, and in the musical sense of addictive and weeping melodies, Nordwitch don't falter at all, like for example the Metal giants in Dimmu Borgir and, in fact, manage to sound more inspiring and far more interesting than what the Dimmu crew has done in many years. It truly amazes me how well rehearsed this Ukrainian bunch is.

I am enjoying this band more and more with each listen of Mørk profeti. Keep your eyes out for this excellent Ukrainian act. They've got some nice things cooking up in their huge metal cauldron.
