Hörður Lúðvíksson - everything

... 'Between man, God And False Idols' is a thundering album with roots is black metal, death metal, grindcore, progressive metal and post-metal.  The songs constantly shift between these genres and it's not even easy to grab where exactly these alternations occur.  Opener 'The Lies Of His Sons' immediately shows a modern, cutting edge post-metal approach but suddenly turns into a bleak, crushing piece of blackened something.
The guitars seem to breathe an urge for progressive songwriting but the vocals scream anger, distress and brutality, borrowing from both sludge and black metal.  This also continues in the fierce but melodic death metal song 'Amongst Us' which issues similar elements and sounds distinctly 'Show Me Wolves'.  This guy is a genre on his own.  With complex song structure, poured over with a thick layer of sheer brutality, he created something unique and frightening.
