Brothers in arms for five years. Time flies so quickly and now the fourth collaboration with Seid follows. The horn only sounds for a moment before Ægir’s combined power erupts in a storm. The production on “Svartr Sól” reminds the abysmal howls from “Darkness Shall Fall” but the overall work seems to be a little rougher produced. The songs are aggressive and fast but don’t lose their spirit. The howls become cavernous this time but are occasionally accompanied by clean vocals. Seid will definitely remain in existence for the next few years and will always create powerful and monumental Black Metal. May the flame never stop flickering.
The vinyl edition will come later this year as collaboration with another label.
