Norway's solo project Myrholt have returned with a new recording which continues the Norwegian style of black metal from previous releases and this is a review of his self released 2019 ep "For Fanden Paa Havet, For Treet Paa Tunet" which will be released on December 13th.
A very heavy and old school sound starts off the ep while the music is also very heavily rooted in t he 90's Norwegian era. Vocals are mostly grim sounding black metal screams along with the riffs also adding in a small amount of melody and all of the musical instruments on the recording also have a very powerful sound to them.
When guitar solos and leads are utilized they are also done in a very melodic style while the second track is a cover of Darkthrone's "En Vind Av Sorg" as well as a couple of the tracks being very long and epic in length. When tremolo picking and blast beats are utilized during the faster sections of the songs it also gives the music more of a raw feeling.
Throughout the recording you can also hear a decent mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts along with the third track being a cover of Sepultura's "Antichrist" which also sounds more raw and aggressive than the earlier version as well as introducing classical guitars onto the recording. The production sounds very dark and raw while the lyrics are written in Norwegian and cover dark themes.
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from Myrholt and if you are a fan of Norwegian black emtal, you should check out this ep. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Et Skimt Av Faenskap!" and "V". 8 out of 10.
