RockmusicRaider Review - Noumena - Myrrys - Album CoverShould we call this the law of physics of metal music? Sometimes it appears that good Melodic Death Metal can only originate from the Finnish cold plains. The reason is probably buried somewhere in the wastes of the North up yonder. Mixed with the dark, icy weather breeding melancholy and a language that nobody understands but themselves. All this invokes an atmosphere that many bands know to exploit only too well. Just think about Insomnium or Wolfheart

But when it comes to doomish Melodeath with a beastly streak, the somewhat unknown band Noumena shines prettily on this lonely mound in the endless Finnish wilderness.Got hooked? Raid this some more...

Vinterblot Realms of the Untold Album CoverImagine Apulia in Italy! Nice weather, good food, an abundance of beach. But home of blackened Melodic Death Metal with a Viking touch? Sounds kind of strange, but … yeah. Some of that is indeed to be found there.

Vinterblot joins us from Bari, the beautiful coastal city way down in the South towards the heel of the boot. And they just unleashed their newest full length record Realms of the Untold this early 2016. Looks like their Teutonic ancestors from long ago are still in their blood and genes somehow. Hence the proverbial and brutal fury they let loose on this record.

Reminiscent to bands like NordWitch for style and Amon Amarth for content, they now managed to distinguish themselves.Got hooked? Raid this some more...
