GRYFTIGAEN – FEHUNTHYRDAUTHR ( Review by Varg The Mighty )

Today’s review is of Chilean Raw Black Metal band Gryftigaen’s upcoming new album, out on March 1st.

This releases captures the occult essence of the genre in a mesmerizing way that will drag the listener into a nearby abyss. Combined with the raw yet not too dissonant or underproduced tracks are elements of Dark Ambient that transcend the conceptions of intros, outros or interludes and truly converges with the extreme side of the album.

To add some further foul elements, the tempo tends to approach that of Blackened Doom Metal, and these transitions are subtle and well-placed, bringing to mind current Mayhem, Gaahl’s Wyrd or Lunar Chalice, though the fury is later recovered and it all tends towards a more common but not less fresh approach. My personal highlights are “Djúphljóð” and “Drowned In A Rising Sun”.

I recommend this album to fans of Raw Black Metal and Ambient Black Metal. My rating is of 9/10
