EVE (2017)
La banda se creó en 2012, todo este tiempo lo han empleado en la composición de este álbum conceptual que versa sobre el manuscrito "Voynich", obra escrita en el siglo XIV que no se ha podido todavía descifrar ni interpretar. La banda consta de cuatro músicos más que experimentados en bandas como Hanging Garden, Nostalgie, Deadly Carnage y Ashes Of Chaos entre otras, con lo cual podemos hacernos una idea de que no son unos recién llegados, aún cuando este nueva banda no tenga mucho que ver, musicalmente hablando, con las anteriormente mencionadas. El álbum ofrece cuatro temas de una duración más que considerable que van adentrando al oyente en un mundo oculto, en donde las sombras predominan y en donde nada es lo que parece, al mismo tiempo que llega a ofrecer un viaje astral al adentrarse en el subconsciente de la mente humana. Para ello se sirven de una música que suena casi como un mantra, sirviendo de estructuras repetitivas, agresivas y crudas la mayoría de las veces y unas voces desgarradas, no muy presentes pero que añaden frialdad y soledad al resultado final. El lo más de cincuenta y siete minutos de duración de este álbum la banda se las arregla para entregar un álbum denso y oscuro que bebe de elementos como el doom, totalmente presente en todos los temas, un ambiente frío, casi que gélido, también esta a la orden del día y envuelve a su música en un halo de misterio. No podemos olvidarnos de algunos cambios de ritmo bruscos, que aparecen en ciertos temas y que rompen de repente con la linea continuista para añadir, la mayor parte de las veces, extraños sonidos que avocan a la soledad del cosmos. El tema que cierra el álbum "Laudanom", aún siendo el más extenso, representa todos los valores que atesora este grupo. (8,1).

ALLEGIANCE OF THE PROFANE PACK (2007)

La trayectoria de esta banda ucraniana no ha sido muy extensa, pero en sus dos años de existencias se las arreglaron para editar una demo, un álbum y meter estos cuatro temas en este compartido en el cual son los encargados de abrirlo. Entre sus miembros podemos encontrar a músicos que han estado involucrados en proyectos como Kroda, Paganland o Dragobrath entre otros. Los cuatro temas aquí incluidos responden a una propuesta que se mueve entre el black y el detah. Riffs poderosos, bien hilvanados con un cierto regusto a heavy clásico, todo ello de la mano de un ritmo no muy apurado en donde se pueden apreciar las lineas de bajo bien elaboradas. Las voces tal vez sea el elemento más variable y en donde se ha realizado un trabajo más cuidado, siendo capaces de ofrecer una vertiente violenta y extrema, rezumando brutalidad y odio. El apartado de la batería cumple a la perfección aportando la contundencia necesaria en las partes más rápidas y directas, pero también amoldándose a las lineas de medios tiempos cuando están presentes. Su música se centra en el nacionalismo ucraniano, y si que es cierto que en han  logrado colar una atmósfera de reminiscencias pagana en el conjunto final de los cuatro temas. Un aporte más que interesante a este compartido, cumpliendo a la perfección, en una línea madura y que recuerda a bandas de mayor envergadura. (8,2).

OPERATION WINTER MIST

IMPERIAL GRAND STRATEGY (2005)
El salto de calidad con respecto a pasadas ediciones de la banda canadiense está fuera de toda duda en su primer larga duración. Estamos hablando de una producción más elaborada que enfatiza los puntos fuertes de sus propuesta, es decir los magníficos riffs de los que hacen gala, así como las voces. No vamos a descubrir ni desentrañar los entresijos del estilo del cual son participes, el war metal en mayor o menor medida acaba por estar presente en las composiciones. Si embargo una virtud de Operation Winter Mist, por lo meno bajo mi punto de vista, es la no saturación de su sonido, logran sonar directos e impregnan sus música de violencia y ambiente bélico, pero en su propuesta los medios tiempos tienen cabida, desprendiendo todo ello una aire a la segunda ola del black. Temas como "Imperial" o "The Cold Front" son buena muestra de lo expuesto, contundencia, violencia y cierta brutalidad, pero al mismo tiempo podemos encontrar interesantes cambios de ritmo, variedad de riffs y aproximaciones al thrash, con una ambientación bélica que no se ve mermada. La batería no ha solapado el resto de instrumentos de la música de la banda y es de agradecer que el protagonismo se lo lleve la guitarra y las voces, esta últimas son capaces de transmitir rabia y dolor, sonando bastante sucias. La propuesta de Operation Winter Mist resulta mus interesante, se adentran el mundo del war metal, logran una buena ambientación, sin embargo no lo hacen de la manera esperada,  sino que lo logran a través de una forma diferente, dinámica y sin caer en clichés. (7,6).



1. Arctic Wolves 04:07
 Followed by a predatory beast
Wolf tracks in the snow
I know that the wolves are near

Wolf fangs stained with blood
Saliva drips a crimson tear
Carnivores of the North
Soon it will be time to feed

Follow your predator instinct
Wolf fang stained with blood
Our enemies be food for the wolf

Guardians of the North
Protect the clans purity
Preserve the pack territory
All intruders are the prey to feed

The howls in the moonlight
The sound that scared the night

Bring up the alpha males
Let them lead the charge
Sum up their racks
Ravage like a platoon of tanks
For arctic wolves fear no human being
Come forth for the North
All for the arctic legions
Go for the throat
Let blood drip onto the snow
Scent of blood draws the others near

Wolf bone chills the North wind
Traditional songs after the feast
Their howls inspire Vinlandic pride
And the wolf became part of me

Come forward alpha females
Whelp for the pack and breed
Disperse to the south
And spread the arctic seed
Multiply for race and species

For arctic wolves fear no human being
Come forth for the North
All for the arctic legion
Go for the throat
Let blood drip onto the snow
Scent of a kill draws the others near
2. Imperial 05:06
At the dawn of a new era
At the end of the third great war
Rising from the ashes of humanity
The empire of storms
The empire shall rise
To feed the ambitions of the people
As the emperor stands tall
On a throne of skulls
Of all those who have opposed him
And met their fate at the end of the sword

The empire shall rise
As all the old kingdoms fall

It''s the rise of the northern empire
The time has come as others before
Break the peace and the treaties
Let your voice be heard
With bone and steel, sword and shield
We raise our flags

Legions of the storm
Gather your armies to the south
The southern borders lay open
We must first crush the Christian empire

Grasp the reigns of power
Form the axis by which the world turns
Expand the sphere of influence
Finalize the Imperial Grand Strategy

Mighty northern empire
A mountain unto itself
Stoke the fires of conquest
Cleanse the world in it''s purifying flames

Command the reins of power
Be the axis by which the world turns
One spake to ignite the fire
Let the world bend to our will
3. Death and Honour 03:59
  Europe was burning
Germany was at the height of its power
A raiding force challenge the raging seas
To execute Operation Jubilee
Trained to assault in the light of day
For one chance to face the enemy
Naval squirmish fade hope for surprise
On the beaches of Dieppe
The enemy was waiting

Landing at dawns first light
Under intense Nazi fire
Battalions stormed the flashing inferno of defence
To fight the blazing bloody battle of Dieppe
Send in the first wave of Canadians

Your all going to die
Death and Honour
Strength and Pride
They sacrificed their lives
We salute you

When shall their glory fade
When face down floating in the waves
The channel and the sands of Dieppe
Have been honoured by the blood of Canadians

For all the men that hit the beach
On that fateful day
Died in a blaze of glory
Or surrendered with honour

Truimph was not to be
And would wait for us another day
Some escaped the beach
Many would never leave
As a testimony to ferocity
The sacrifice before glory
And gallantry of Canadians
4. The Cold Front 05:00
  Fortified defensive position
On the cold front, holding the line
Tranquility interrupted
By an artillery barrage
Winter blitz bombs fall from the sky
They rocked, trembled, tremored and turned
The earth
Exhuming the bodies of the fallen
And took the lives our comrades

Shockwave scorched flesh falls from the bone
Unearth, the rotten horrors of war
The scourge set free
Spreading plague and disease
Corpse rats grow fat off dead flesh
Trench rats stripped the flesh from the bone

Cold steel and concrete
Hedge hogs and dragons teeth
Barbwire with trip wires
Carbines and mixed landmines
Caught within the crossfire
Few survived the cold front

High velocity 88 salvos
Cold front equals ground zero
Rocket volley arches through the sky
Crashing down with rolling thunder

As the enemy advanced on all fronts
We stopped them cold in their tracks
With fanatical resistance
Resist them
No retreat, no surrender
Not one step back
5. Divine Wind 04:06
  A typhoon brewed in the east
As zeros take to the sky
Formations come in waves
Of men willing to die
On a one way mission
For the Emperor Showa
Unleash the Suicide squads

Ritual suicide, crash and burn, final strike
Divine Wind

Hordes gathered on the horizon
With the rising sun to their backs
Carried by the Winds of God
Unwavering devotion
Transcending life and death
Unyielding allegiance
Unleash the Suicide squards

At high speed crash into the deck of a warship
Spirit of dead comrades watch intently
Ignite the fuel to detonate the bombs
A final death roll will increase the death toll

A strategy of must is master
To pave the road to victory
In order to eradicate the enemy
Trade one life for many

Hordes gathered on the horizon
With the rising sun to their backs
Carried by the Wind of God
Never to return

Vanguard of an avenging force
Martyrs that accept the oath
Samurai die by the code
Thunder God crash and burn
6. Frontal Assault 02:57
Concealed in the forest, in the year 1944
Panzer divisions are deployed ready to attack
Mechanized formations committed to a great offensive
Answer the fatherland''s call
Engage in a frontal assault

In a shroud of December''s fury
Under cover of the Winters mist
Forging men and machine to strike with an iron fist
Infantry and war machines, smash through the enemy lines
Into a steel storm of total war
Engage in a frontal assault

Surround them, destroy them, drive them back across the sea

Tigers spearhead a blitzkrieg, infantry follow in their tracks
Leveled cities and atrocities will bring the invaders to their knees
Sound now a truimphant trumpet blast
Choke on the bitter taste of defeat
Victory is within our grasp
Engage in a frontal assault
7. A Call to Arms 04:55
Like a raging wind
We scorched the earth
With a fist of steel
We swept armies aside
With hammers of fire
Set the world ablaze
In mighty bursts of flame
Bombs fell from the sky

By the Declaration of war
We answered the call to arms

For the glory of the Empire
A dream that one day will be real

The city streets in jubilee
Parading for victory
Hysteria the people cheer
A deafening roar is all you hear

Trumpet and fife
Marching band lead the way with pipe
Marching to the beat of the drum
Chin up, eyes straight, with shouldered gun
Fathers take their sons by the hand
Marching off together into foreign lands
Follow the beat of the drum
There''s a job to be done
Embrace the call

To hell with the cowards
They run and hide
Remembered are those who''ve fought and died
Honoured ones who gave their lives
Their names shall be written in stone
Preserved for eternity
The price of victory pays a heavy toll
Freedom doesn''t come cheap
8. Northern Aggression 04:04
Barricade the gates
For the true northmen come
Buckle under the weight
By the coming of the storm
When you realize
You''re the cause of these troubled times
You''ll get your just deserves
For your treachery you pay ten fold

When you realize
You still the cause of these troubled times
What choice were we given?
Capitulate or be destroyed

Bow down before the aggressor
Brought to your knees, now beg
Show not mercy but violence
Succumb to the coming storm

Five times invaded
Five times you failed
To pluck that jewel from the northern crown
You, so many in number
We, so many in few
Now we march to the gates of your capital

White flags are waving
A city incinerated
The wrath brought down by the aggressor
Women and children are screaming
You brought this war to us
Throw up your hands and surrender

1812, I still remember
That burning image in my mind
As we set your capital to the torch
9. Between the Pincers 03:12   instrumental
  37:26  




The remarkable ARKONA - pioneers of second wave Polish Black Metal since 1993 – commence partnership with Debemur Morti Productions in style via the magnificent "Lunaris", the most fully realised expression of their singular vision.

Consolidating and updating the earthen grandiosity perfected on classic 1996 debut "Imperium", ARKONA have created the perfect synthesis of forward-reaching Pagan Black Metal, dark neo-classical melodicism, corrupted romanticism and raging existential power.

Meticulous, harmonious tremolo riffs and reverberant leads are wistful and strident in equal proportion, dovetailing seamlessly with layered orchestration to converge in emotive climatic revelation.

Water-tight rhythms cascade in rolling waves of authority; potent hyper-blasts performed on natural snare effect a ritualistic offering to the infinite. Slower movements expose the weight of the players, the gravitas, the import of the message.

The spectre of folk music fortifies the melodies, subtly informing robust song-structures which reawaken the collective unconscious to past and future majesties just out of reach.

"Lunaris" is a palimpsest of haunted modernity with an underlying raw howl straight from primitive lifeblood.

With this emphatic new record, ARKONA trigger a free-fall deep into the metaphysical dream logic of the genre.

Comes with 12"x12" insert.

WINTER WARFARE II (2004)
En este "recopilatorio" encontramos material variado de lo editado por la banda canadiense hasta aquel momento, temas de su segunda demo, tres temas de la remasterización del Ep, una revisión del Sadist de Bathory y cuatro temas más en directo. Su música se encuadra dentro del war metal, el black metal y el death sonando de manera bastante directa y contundente y recogiendo variadas influencias que van desde el sonido clásico de bandas como Darkthrone a influencias de otras bandas más afines a su temática como puede ser Marduk. Es cierto que la temática y el estilo musical de Operation Winter Mist puede llevar a pensar en una banda de doble bombo omnipresente, que no deja títere con cabeza a su paso, sin embargo la propuesta está más elaborada y aunque el ambiente bélico y la intensidad de su música esta presente, también podemos encontrar momentos más tranquilos, donde los medios tiempos se intercalan con momentos más directos y crudos dando muestras de la versatilidad de los músicos y de la propuesta. El carácter directo de su música no es impedimento para que los riffs sean completos y variados, capaces de enervar al oyente en ciertos momentos, la batería aunque sencilla cumple y dinamiza el apartado musical así como las voces que se amoldan a la contundencia de la propuesta. Los temas en directo permiten disfrutar de la intensidad de su música, sonando más sucios pero más cercanos de la mano de un publico enardecido. Tal vez esperábamos un recopilatorio más al uso, en donde se recogieran temas antiguos de una forma más estructurada, sin embargo falta una línea que de coexistencia al conjunto, resultado este aspecto tal vez el más mejorable. (8).



1. Frostbitten Northern War 04:42
  Occupate, assimilate to eliminate

Four our will to survive is strong
Crusader, invader, enslaver
You can''''t take away our freedom
Foreign Christian ideology
No match for technology
Out flank, out rank, out gun
Mobilize for unrestricted warfare
Operation Winter Mist declares total war!
Empires rise, kindgoms fall
Human scum, kill ''''em all
Prince of peace, God of war
Death to peace, there''''s only war
Diplomacy is futility
For I bear the sword
We the agressor
From the bitter cold mighty north
Frost bitten northern war
Whose side are you fighting for
Right hand raised
In a sign of victory
Of winter storm, in battle born
Free from religious scorn
Set us free in savagery
Mark this cold day in vengeance
Our banners snap in the wind
As we march forth onto victory
Frost bitten northern war
Whose side are you fighting for
Right hand raised
In a sign of victory
All Hell''''s fire falls from the sky
A witness to our enemie''''s demise
Instrument of fear for intervention
From our conquering intentions
Genocide we won''''t hide
We fight with heathen pride
Executioners take no prisoners
Strike with thunder
A lust for plunder
For terror is a weapon
Arctic northern legions
Elite combat divisions
Let war crimse be your ordnance
Show no mercy
And strike fear into their hearts
2. Forever Frost 05:25
Beyond this frozen tundra
Far from the lush borealis
This land of ice and snow
Rolling drifts lap a frozen sea
From the cliffs of Rocky Mountains
Her peaks pierce the blizzards sky
To the barren glacier ice fields
Behold the great pillars of ice
And they hand like jagged wolf fangs
Sparkles like crystal
From the northern lights
A mystical sight so precious indeed
This is our home, the Winterland
Forever frost, unforgiving
In this land that we live in
Forever frost, God forsaken
Can''''t break the arctic pack
Welcome to the kingdom of snow
Cold mysteries are unknown
Welcome to the Winterland
The snow fall will forever remain a mystery
Just like this never ending winter
This land of eternal snow and fog
Penetrating frost like an icy stone
Cold is the heart that wields the sword
Carving out the ancient landscape
Glacier riddled northern badlands
A place that I call my home
Icicles like diamonds
Are just as precious to me
A jewel in the crown of Vinland
Eternal winter’s fury reign
3. Blood on Ice 04:46
Six feet deep buried beneath my feet Under drifts of snow Where the north wind blows Snow piled high under a northern sky Rested those who fell and died well Winter burial like a memorial In a frozen cemetery Tramping through red snow Blood spilt, guts poured frozen to my feet Freezing cold stopped the flow From open wounds Slit throat, gushed poured From a shattered neck Blood formed crimson jagged icicles That sparkled like crystals Under a freezing moon Of those whose stories of victory told On frosty breath by those who cheated death From the north dawned forth The supremacy of man In the dead of winter Bodies emerge from the snow Like a whitened milestone Terror frosted on pale blue faces Preserved for eternity, written in history Iced sword blood poured, frozen to my hands Battles rage in this age for Vinland 
4. Intro 01:05  
5. In the Trenches 03:17
Over the top
You who call yourselves men
Filthy dogs of war
In your blood stained uniform
(With a mple leaf on your uniform)
Arise from your trenches
Scatter across no man''''s land
Mustard gas fills your lungs
Vapours burn as you pass away
Emerge from the trenches
Asnwer freedom''''s call
A great prize awaits
On the outcome of Viny Ridge
Through dense smoke and gas
Emerged a true offenzive power
Advanced with fixed bayonets
Wave after wave of shock troops
Storm the stronghold
And take the high ground
This elite fighting force
That hammered hill 145
Bore the maple leaf
You will not die
But step into immortality
Where Canadians are engaged
There can be no giving way
In the hard fought field of battle
The enemy was overcome
The tide of war reversed
A great prize was awarded
The birth of a nation
6. At All Cost 03:59
It''''s a terrible sight to see
Formations of steel machines
Men standing poised in the turret
Blood splattered on the chassis
Tank tracks caked in flesh and bone
Moving fast to defend our homes
We the knights of old
Command fire breathing dragons
On a steel mount we ride
Racing towards the objective
Into battle iron clads collide
Belching smoke and fire
The foundation trembled before our wake
To this place that bears the tyrant''''s name
Advance makes the earth quake
Broken be the morale to resist
The scent of diesel fills the air
Expel the fumes in clouds of exhaust
Rallied by the panzer''''s roar
As all guns open fire
It''''s a terrible sight indeed
Formations of steel machines, let''''s roll
Take this city at all cost
Burn their homes, take their lives
At all cost
A great city lay before us
We must take it at all cost
Take this city at all cost
Burn their homes, take their lives
At all cost
Siege guns take up positions
One by one each building crumbles
Brick by brick, street by street
We''''ll tear the walls down
Make their guns fall silent
And the enemy is buried in the rubble
Of their once beloved city
There is nothing left but the suffering
One bullet to end their misery
In this graveyard of a once great city
The infernal cauldron empty and in ruins
And all that remains
Are tombstones and mass graves
7. Iron Coffins 05:21
Battle of the Atlantic rages
In a war that seems to last for ages
Kriegs Marines, Killing merchant marines
Submerged in their war machines
Wolf Packs and torpedo attacks
U-boats are the Iron Coffins
Iron crosses and heavy losses
The brave Kriegs Marines always come back for more
Convoys, decoys, we destroy
Where the hunter becomes the hunted
U-boats are the wolves at sea
In stealth and in silence stalking their prey
Attack, tear and sink
At periscope depth they''''re targeting death
With gyroscopes set
The objective will be met
Full speed ahead, engage the convoy
Iron coffin, bare your fangs
With nerves of steel in this war of tonnage
The wolf now sinks its teeth in
A sonar ping is a haunting sound
Destroyer above our position found
Depth charge breeds panic as the warship comes back around
Splashes in the water
Depth Charge!
Destroyer sweeping, sonar seeking
To detect the Iron Coffin below
Depth charge detonates to rock the vessel
Shock waves ear ring to muffle the sonar ping
Torpedo spread, target acquired
Under the surface, prepare to die
Torpedos loose streaming towards the ships
Lines cut into the water, covers broken
Warship steams towards their source
All guns blazing, hell raising
A steady decent into the deep
Pressure gauge reads one hundred feet
Air thins, breath suffocating
In anxiety the walls are closing in
Heart stopping, sounds of the engines above
Destroyer sweeping, sonar seeking
Break the surface, man the guns, lock and load to finish them off
Start the engines, turn the screws, crank the shaft
To avoid another hit
Breach their hulls, take on water, forced to scuttle dead in the water
Let''''s send them to a watery grave
Flood the tubes, release the fury, level her off as bulk heads snap
Bow to the sky, slipping away beneath the deep
Commit their bodies to the deep
On a one way ticket to hell
In an Iron Coffin
8. Sadist (Bathory cover) 02:54
I love to see you writhe in throe
The more you suffer my lust grows
I slit your throat and tear your flesh
My desire will be your death

SADIST (Tormentor)

I welter in blood I rape and slay
Stab sliver lacerate
so many lusts to satisfy
To still my hunger another must die

SADIST (Tormentor)

"But now the sand of time is running out"
I feel old (so cold)
Can hear the bell toll
So week (must sleep)
Can hear my victims shout
Can''''t stand their cries their call

I gotta pay for my lusts...
They''''re dragging me down...
9. At All Cost (live) 04:00
 It''''s a terrible sight to see
Formations of steel machines
Men standing poised in the turret
Blood splattered on the chassis
Tank tracks caked in flesh and bone
Moving fast to defend our homes
We the knights of old
Command fire breathing dragons
On a steel mount we ride
Racing towards the objective
Into battle iron clads collide
Belching smoke and fire
The foundation trembled before our wake
To this place that bears the tyrant''''s name
Advance makes the earth quake
Broken be the morale to resist
The scent of diesel fills the air
Expel the fumes in clouds of exhaust
Rallied by the panzer''''s roar
As all guns open fire
It''''s a terrible sight indeed
Formations of steel machines, let''''s roll
Take this city at all cost
Burn their homes, take their lives
At all cost
A great city lay before us
We must take it at all cost
Take this city at all cost
Burn their homes, take their lives
At all cost
Siege guns take up positions
One by one each building crumbles
Brick by brick, street by street
We''''ll tear the walls down
Make their guns fall silent
And the enemy is buried in the rubble
Of their once beloved city
There is nothing left but the suffering
One bullet to end their misery
In this graveyard of a once great city
The infernal cauldron empty and in ruins
And all that remains
Are tombstones and mass graves
10. Blood on Ice (live) 04:07
 Six feet deep buried beneath my feet
Under drifts of snow
Where the north wind blows
Snow piled high under a northern sky
Rested those who fell and died well
Winter burial like a memorial
In a frozen cemetery
Tramping through red snow
Blood spilt, guts poured frozen to my feet
Freezing cold stopped the flow
From open wounds
Slit throat, gushed poured
From a shattered neck
Blood formed crimson jagged icicles
That sparkled like crystals
Under a freezing moon
Of those whose stories of victory told
On frosty breath by those who cheated death
From the north dawned forth
The supremacy of man
In the dead of winter
Bodies emerge from the snow
Like a whitened milestone
Terror frosted on pale blue faces
Preserved for eternity, written in history
Iced sword blood poured, frozen to my hands
Battles rage in this age for Vinland

Battle of the Atlantic rages In a war that seems to last for ages Kriegs Marines, Killing merchant marines Submerged in their war machines Wolf Packs and torpedo attacks U-boats are the Iron Coffins Iron crosses and heavy losses The brave Kriegs Marines always come back for more Convoys, decoys, we destroy Where the hunter becomes the hunted U-boats are the wolves at sea In stealth and in silence stalking their prey Attack, tear and sink At periscope depth they''''re targeting death With gyroscopes set The objective will be met Full speed ahead, engage the convoy Iron coffin, bare your fangs With nerves of steel in this war of tonnage The wolf now sinks its teeth in A sonar ping is a haunting sound Destroyer above our position found Depth charge breeds panic as the warship comes back around Splashes in the water Depth Charge! Destroyer sweeping, sonar seeking To detect the Iron Coffin below Depth charge detonates to rock the vessel Shock waves ear ring to muffle the sonar ping Torpedo spread, target acquired Under the surface, prepare to die Torpedos loose streaming towards the ships Lines cut into the water, covers broken Warship steams towards their source All guns blazing, hell raising A steady decent into the deep Pressure gauge reads one hundred feet Air thins, breath suffocating In anxiety the walls are closing in Heart stopping, sounds of the engines above Destroyer sweeping, sonar seeking Break the surface, man the guns, lock and load to finish them off Start the engines, turn the screws, crank the shaft To avoid another hit Breach their hulls, take on water, forced to scuttle dead in the water Let''''s send them to a watery grave Flood the tubes, release the fury, level her off as bulk heads snap Bow to the sky, slipping away beneath the deep Commit their bodies to the deep On a one way ticket to hell In an Iron Coffin

Occupate, assimilate to eliminate Four our will to survive is strong Crusader, invader, enslaver You can''''t take away our freedom Foreign Christian ideology No match for technology Out flank, out rank, out gun Mobilize for unrestricted warfare Operation Winter Mist declares total war! Empires rise, kindgoms fall Human scum, kill ''''em all Prince of peace, God of war Death to peace, there''''s only war Diplomacy is futility For I bear the sword We the agressor From the bitter cold mighty north Frost bitten northern war Whose side are you fighting for Right hand raised In a sign of victory Of winter storm, in battle born Free from religious scorn Set us free in savagery Mark this cold day in vengeance Our banners snap in the wind As we march forth onto victory Frost bitten northern war Whose side are you fighting for Right hand raised In a sign of victory All Hell''''s fire falls from the sky A witness to our enemie''''s demise Instrument of fear for intervention From our conquering intentions Genocide we won''''t hide We fight with heathen pride Executioners take no prisoners Strike with thunder A lust for plunder For terror is a weapon Arctic northern legions Elite combat divisions Let war crimse be your ordnance Show no mercy And strike fear into their hearts

Viking Metal you said ?
Ereb Altor is a Swedish band that was formed in 2003 by members of the epic doom metal outfit Forlorn (who have since
switched their moniker to Isole). The band’s first albums were lauded for their seamless weaving of the Viking era of Bathory with
traditional epic doom metal. With their third album, “Gastrike”, and it’s follow up, “Fire Meets Ice”, Ereb Altor abandoned the
trappings of epic doom for a more black metal influenced sound. “Nattramn”, the band’s fifth full length album, released in 2015,
continued in that vein, focusing on merging their epic Viking metal with cold black metal atmospherics, but overall it seemed to
be a darker album than before.
That brings us to 2017, and the release of Ereb Altor’s magnus opus yet, “Ulfven”! Bathory, but also hidden Swedish folk melodies,
remain the band’s largest influence, which is quite evident with the adventurous pacing, crunchy riffs and frequent epic clean
vocals. The album mixes between heavy handed segments of galloping riffs and crashing percussion, and more nuanced
melodies driven forth by a wall of keyboard notes. It’s that essence of balance that makes this album work so well, backed up by
a very powerful production.
The clean vocal melodies sound stronger and more confident this time around and the harsh and raspy roars are more furious
and raging. The band leans on the airy keyboard passages a little more than before, but it adds a more melodic flare to the
slower passages. The majority of the album focuses on Quorthon inspired riffing, with its thick power chords and thundering
percussion mixed with an airy keyboard backdrop that brings to mind “Hammerheart” and “Twilight of the Gods”. The previously
mentioned black metal influences work their way in here and there, but the focus remains on Bathory-ish epicness and heaviness.
It’s pretty clear at this point that Ereb Altor isn’t keen to return to the sounds of the first two albums, but the music on “Ulfven”
proves that the band is really blazing their own trail. Sure, they still sound a bit like Bathory, but it comes through revelry and
nostalgia rather than the blatant aping of Quorthon.
For fans of: Bathory, Falkenbach, Primordial, Manowar, Candlemas
