Hardly a month ever goes by here without at least one album of darkly shining German black metal. Our neighbours in the east must have some secret ingredient in their beer or something. Here's another powerhaus from Nordrhein-Westfalen, faithfuly following the pattern I love so much since I got to know Lunar Aurora. An untakable wall of sound owing both to dense and capable instrumentation and a delightfully heavy production, and a focus on an immersive atmosphere that takes an almost totalitarian hold on the brains through a good pair of headphones. Helrunar sometimes tend to be labelled under the term melodic black metal, but in terms of the extreme, all-encompassing listening experience and sheer force these men display, those labellers are selling a release like Baldr ok Iss tragically short.
