Danish band Eldjudnir's first album Angrboða might be the most neglected but very important Black Metal album of year 2012 to 2013. Takes Norse Mythology as its theme, this album is epic, dark, cold and full of plenty of folk music elements. It has the temperament of Ulver's early works. First out on CD version!
After listening to Ysyry Mollvün, listening to Downfall of Nur was urgent and turned out to be one of the best decisions I have made in quite some time: Umbras de Barbagia is simply magisterial; the atmosphere can hardly be compared to anything else. There is a deep, palpable connection to nature imbueing each very fibre of this record. The amalgamation of black metal and folk elements is done with a high intuition for detail and class, resulting in a highly immersive experience. Wonderful. David Fischer
