BLACK FOR DEATH
SEASON OF MIST
Subtitled AN ICELANDIC ODYSEY PART II, Solefald's sequel is laden with croaking doom ambiance, folk metal fanfare, and goth metal majesty. While the 12 tracks that comprise this release cater to the fantasy metal/ Lord of the Rings contingent, there's a discernible amount of experimentation ongoing in cuts like "Underworld" and "Dark Waves Dying" to soak in and some King Diamond-esque diatribes on "Spoken to the End of All" to keep the listener on guard. Genre-spanning and prolific, BLACK FOR DEATH widens their scope in order to properly tell their homeland's tales musically.
