𝕾𝖎𝖓 𝖑: 𝕲𝖚𝖎𝖙𝖆𝖗 & 𝕭𝖆𝖘𝖘: Introducing to the use of only an acoustic guitar [unplugged & raw], the use of the electric guitar and bass are absent​, just pure cold/frostbitten atmospheric, eerie spine chilling-depressive strumming

𝕾𝖎𝖓 𝖑𝖑: 𝖁𝖔𝖈𝖆𝖑𝖘: Slow depressive black metal shrieks

𝕾𝖎𝖓 𝖑𝖑𝖑: 𝕯𝖗𝖚𝖒𝖘: Absent

𝕾𝖎𝖓 𝖑𝖁: 𝕺𝖛𝖊𝖗𝖆𝖑𝖑: Acoustic black metal is all new to me, but I’ve heard the term before! But this is the first time for me, hearing acoustic black metal; I thought this couldn’t work?… But I was wrong, and this does work, was enjoyable to listen to.

The amalgamation of over (basic & raw) three minutes of cold atmospheric strums of the acoustic with black metal shrieks makes this song unique, giving the impression of loneliness, eerie, spine chilling much darker, frostbitten, grim, depressing, an authentic feel of magic/ritual & Paganism

*dark & fantastic*

*Awe-Inspiring from start to end* *pure beauteous & magical*


Tuomas Kauppinen comments:

"In the Arms of North is an invocation of the ancient pagan gods from Finland's pre-Christian era. Those entities have not forsaken us, and they can be summoned at will with proper Magick. This piece is a homage to bonfires, blood ritual and the djinns that science has forced us to renounce."

A one-man black metal act 

that is magical reconnecting to

Paganism & Blood Rituals

𝕾𝖎𝖓 𝖁: 𝕬𝖗𝖙𝖜𝖔𝖗𝖐: The artwork is dark & epic, with so much going on in the picture; woodland/forest, snowflakes, crow/raven, dark figures and in the middle of the picture, showing a white figure [an old pagan god/goddess, djinn, ghostly figure or a woodland/forest guardian?]

𝕾𝖎𝖓 𝖁𝖑: 𝕺𝖚𝖙𝖘𝖙𝖆𝖓𝖉𝖎𝖓𝖌: For me has to be the whole single and the dark epic artwork

𝕾𝖎𝖓 𝖁𝖑𝖑: 𝕯𝖎𝖘𝖑𝖎𝖐𝖊: none !!!
