𝕾𝖎𝖓 𝖑: 𝕲𝖚𝖎𝖙𝖆𝖗 & 𝕭𝖆𝖘𝖘: Guitar riffage of a pure second wave of black metal, that is depressing, repetitive, damped with dreed, hatred, melancholic parts & tremolo picking with ravaging pickings of the bass.

𝕾𝖎𝖓 𝖑𝖑: 𝖁𝖔𝖈𝖆𝖑𝖘: Cold & harsh rasping/scream, that is reminiscent of depressive black metal.

𝕾𝖎𝖓 𝖑𝖑𝖑: 𝕯𝖗𝖚𝖒𝖘: Countless blast-beasts, cold and morbid drum beats.

𝕾𝖎𝖓 𝖑𝖁: 𝕺𝖛𝖊𝖗𝖆𝖑𝖑: With a short (Organ) introduction, that will make the listening uncomfortable, then the overall music is placed into a Niche of ten depressive/sad shortish songs that are dark, eerie, full of hatred, cold as the Swedish winter landscape or abanded graveyard

Apart from been influenced by the depressive black metal, there is some love and fusion of the second wave of black metal buried with rawest and bleakest – topped off with pure darkness, grim/sorrow, mid-fast/slow intersections, with a feeling of death-wish/ nihilism within the music.

Hymns of Black Metal


sorrow, despair, death, depression & darkness

𝕾𝖎𝖓 𝖁: 𝕬𝖗𝖙𝖜𝖔𝖗𝖐: The artwork, is another outstanding piece of work, showing the angel of death over bones of the demise, or one epic tombstone?

𝕾𝖎𝖓 𝖁𝖑: 𝕺𝖚𝖙𝖘𝖙𝖆𝖓𝖉𝖎𝖓𝖌: Whole full-length, the production, craftmanship that been put into Hymner till döden

𝕾𝖎𝖓 𝖁𝖑𝖑: 𝕯𝖎𝖘𝖑𝖎𝖐𝖊: For me, and yet again, I can’t find any dislikes for this band or their music
