Nattsol are a newish band made up of a bunch of former members of other bands you have at least kind of heard of. Norwegian bands have an uphill battle these days, as Norwegian BM is pretty much instantly cliché. Still, I am always willing to give stuff a spin. Since this came along with the awful Lantlos, I was not expecting much, but this is pretty good.

Okay, so there's nothing you haven't heard a thousand times before, but this is well done. Big rolling tremolo riffs with a decent guitar sound, decent screeching vocals, and some nice melodies. They try to break things up with some acoustic passages, but the melodies on them are too pussified to appeal. The riffs are decent, but repeat too much and become dull through repetition. There's not a lot actively bad about this, it is just undistinguished. A decent disc that leaves no trace when it is over.
