Highly anticipated proper and deserved release of Heimdalls Wacht's latest and most important album. Authentic and nostalgic pagan black metal. Without a doubt one of the most respected black metal bands from Germany, always following their own old-school path and attitude, never wimping out or going for the stereotypes or for cheap political remarks. Expect epic yet melancholic guitar melodies and captivating, triumphant choirs carefully composed to mix with aggressive and fierce blasting parts, as well as sections that remind of traditional folk music. Enriched with conceptual lyrics, philosophical and traditional wonderings, deeply rooted in the history of their home-state Westphalia.
supported by 29 fans who also own “Nichtorte, oder die Geistreise des Runenschamanen”
Albums like this give me hope for black metal as a whole. This is a breathtaking, sweeping behemoth that will take you on a journey you may not want to come back from. It’s one of my favorite discoveries of the past five years, and I can only hope that they make more CDs. 100% recommended! admiral_stiffplank
