The streak continues of ass kicking bands to come from Sweden, as the veteran war metal act Naglfar's latest release further reinforces Sweden as the home of the heavy. This nine-track display of hostility combines the epic swagger of Manowar with the crushing crunch of Dimmu Borgir, making SHEOL (Hebrew for Hell, by the way), one of the loudest and incessantly brutal albums to date. This quintet has been on hiatus for five years, yet after one listen of the demonically delicious "Unleash Hell", you'd assume that Naglfar has been here all along, honing its metal craft to the masses.
