Argh! Rich, you are pissing me off. The main songwriter and guitarist for this band is also the founder and driving force behind Solstice, as well as the founder and operator of the Miskatonic Foundation. And he has deliberately made this music as hard to find as possible. He may skin me for reviewing this, as I don't have an 'official' copy, but you are as likely to get a copy of this as you are to grow frigging wings.

The game plan for Isen-Torr is thus: three EPs will be released, all only on vinyl, all limited to 666 copies. One live show will be played at the Keep It True festival, and that will be it. No rereleases, no CDs, no touring, no more material ever. I guess Rich wants to keep it as kvlt as possible. If this was not so damned cool I would just ignore it, but this is so damned cool I can hardly find words.

With the inimitable Tony Taylor on vocals, it comes as no big shock that these two songs sound a lot like older Twisted Tower Dire material – epic, heavy, raw and just awesome as fuck. Both these songs are long and cram in tons of riffs, leads, time shifts, and headbanging. Hard to find much to say about this feast of True Metal rulage except just that – it rules. Magnificent stuff.
