Seidr is a Kentucky-based project that mixes post-metal expansiveness with the deliberately solemn crunch of doom metal to create a jarring yet engaging sound on their seven-track debut FOR WINTER FIRE. Clocking in at over 70 minutes, this unit exhibits no reservations about taking their time to get their point across properly, meticulously constructing an unorthodox and ambitious blend of ambient heaviness with a bevy of textures and flavors from shoegaze to Americana to stoner metal in its ranks. While some of the sounds and nuances employed by Seidr are sure to polarize purists, any listener of heavy music with a sense of adventure and an open mind will have a field day indulging in the luxury of this albumís vast experimental elements and overall ominous atmosphere.
