Wodensthrone: Curse

As this is the first album I have heard by the UK`s Wodensthrone, I have to say I am quite impressed by what I heard. Curse, the bands second full-length, has a really cool sound that, while lo-fi, also comes across as almost majestic at times. The album, while gritty and raw, is also quite tuneful in many spots and I was surprised at times at how good it was.

Even though the songs stretch beyond 9 minutes in most cases, they never get boring. Instead the listener is treated to primitive riffs that paint images of times long gone. The thing with songs of these lengths is that they have to be interesting and in this Wodensthrone shine immensely.

Along with other bands like Winterfylleth and A Forest of Stars, Wodensthrone is one of the UK`s most promising black metal acts. Curse is definitely an album to check out for fans of the genre.
