Slayer of Gods

Rated 4.25/5 (85%) (12 Votes)

Finnish symphonic Black/Death Metallers Brymir formed just about 10 years ago in 2006. The guys have come a long way since their promise-stirring debut album, Breathe Fire to the Sun, which was released on Spinefarm Records in 2011. Then some sort of period of silence descended over them...

Worry not, as that silence was just temporary. They are among us again, this time bringing us their second full-length studio album, titled Slayer of Gods. This eleven-song opus from these gifted musicians has kept the musicianship bar aimed high once again. Melodic and symphonic elements within the band's Black/Death Metal have been employed truly professionally and amazingly well – and hence, Slayer of Gods is, from start to finish actually, a highly powerful and enjoyable album. Brymir surely know more than well what it takes to put an album of this high caliber together, sort of refusing to do anything half-assed, and giving all out of their creativity. All of the eleven songs on Slayer of Gods have well earned their own place as a part of this record. All the symphonic elements have been done and used really well within the songs, without making them sound over-the-top or anything like that, but merely giving more depth for Brymir's excellently crafted, melodic and atmospheric blackened Death Metal. 

Slayer of Gods is an ambitious and masterfully crafted record from these talented Finns, making Brymir one of the most noteworthy forces of the whole symphonic Black/Death Metal genre in 2016.
