Sinmara – Hvísl Stjarnanna
Label: Ván Records
After first few listenings I tried to write this review, but I was speechless, to be honest. This material is mind blowing piece of Icelandic Black Metal scene.
Five full years guys from Sinmara left us in waiting for second full-length, but with safe I can say now, it worth while. Here in front of us we have genuine chaotic black metal that disappeared from almost from corners of the world, but for some reasons, Iceland is full of it.
Here you will get almost forty-three minutes of pure black metal that is uncompromising, and goes straight directly into you, like a train. They took their time to make yet again great material, and they managed to that on the best possible way, if you ask me. From production point of view, with ease you can say that Mr Stephen Lockhart made brilliant sound on this magnificent black metal opus.
All sorts of mysticism, chaos worship and Norse mythology you can feel in this audio madness, but I will put my accent on “chaos” here, cause this album is perfect collector of utter chaos and it spits that dread in audio form right toward you, like a lava made from sonic sinister waves.
