Brad Clifton Like the land from which this band hails, Heljarkviða is a reflection of it's harsh landscape; hauntingly stark and cold, fused with a conflagration of blackened metal savagery.
A phenomenal release steeped in Icelandic history.

Favorite track: Heljarkviða II: Helgrindr brotnar.

/i/ True masterpiece is heavy to listen to. It grabs my attention forcefully and keep me to stick it and pour my full energy and thoughts to it up. After the listening, I'm about to die and reborn from it. It's like a ritual!

Every work from Arstidir Lifsins is a truest masterpiece of solemn folk black metal. This is only two songs EP. So I thought this is not so heavy enough to drown in. But, hey, this overwhelmed me and I'm about to die happily now. What a work of magic!! Favorite track: Heljarkviða I: Á helvegi.
