March of the Norse

Rated 3.61/5 (72.14%) (28 Votes)

Some blackened Viking Metal here courtesy of Demonaz of Immortal fame. At just under 36 minutes, this album is on the short side and doesn't overstay its welcome. I was expecting something faster and more aggressive because of the Immortal relationship, but March of the Norse is more on the "tame" side. Very melodic, somewhat catchy and not overly fast with clean vocals – quite the contrast to what I was expecting.

While the album is tame, it is nonetheless pretty heavy and flirting with the epic side of things. The highlight has to be the guitars which sound razor-sharp throughout, and the drums are occasionally thunderous. The raspy clean vocals pretty much got stuck in my head on the first listen – nothing extraordinary, but very well done. The album does get a little bit repetitive despite its short length, but with the melodies being so... relaxing in a way, I can't say it ever gets boring – not something I think I could have said if the length had been pushed further, however. Worth checking out.
