- Transparent cassette
Finally, the wait is over!
The third album by Norways finest, WHOREDOM RIFE, is upon us!
Six new hymns of traditional Norwegian Black Metal, heavily rooted in the 90ies glory days, or as V.Einride says; "we're not retro, we're just late".
Both K.R and V. Einride having more than 30 years longevity in the Norwegian Black Metal scene, the band is not exactly new to this.
Epic and grandiose, melancholic and utterly aggressive; Winds of Wrath is truly a tumultous ride to Hell and back.
The album was written, recorded and performed by V.Einride, as always aided by vocalist K.R, whose vocal performance on this album is downright frightening. Rarely do one hear a vocalist spew forth hatred in such a convincing manner.
Winds of Wrath is perhaps their most complete album to date in all regards, and features stunning performances by both members, as the band still to this day remains a two piece act.
Mixing and mastering was done by Rune Stavnesli/Stavmix Studios like all relases before, and is also worth a mention as the production is simply brilliant. Clear and loud, yet raw and powerful!
Cover art has once again been handled by José Alegria Sabogal with layout handled by Contamination Design, and they have yet again outdone themselves.
The perfect visuals to the audial terror Winds of Wrath presents; a perfect coalition of music and art, something the band has been known for throughout their relatively short existance.
Play loud repeatedly as this is truly a grower, and perhaps not as immediate as their earlier releases! , and keep an eye out for their upcoming European tour with ARCHGOAT in November 2021!
