Description/Reviews
This masterpiece comes with a red hot passion like glowing magma and emotionality as stormy as the wild Northern Atlantic. Aðalbjörn Tryggvason's gritty vocals grind the soul like an Icelandic gravel field and still carry the dark melancholy of a Nordic winter night. One moment the strings soar like raging flames, the next they spiral with hypnotic force to the capturing pounding of drum and bass. Although there is a tendency of the first part "Andvari" to tend towards the psychedelic, while the second half "Gola" reveals a more rocking outlook, both belong together and never fail to amaze, astonish and surprise.
