Jotunspor: Gleipnirs Smeder

Jotunspor brings together ex-members of Gorgoroth, guitarist / bassist King Ov Hell and drummer Kvitrafn as they unleash the primal sounds of Gleipnirs Smeder to the black metal community. The sound is raw, primitive and atmospheric at times with lyrics sung completely in Norwegian and the ancient norse language. During the past year King has been a part of three different bands, he recorded Ad Majorem Sathanas Gloriam with Gorgoroth and the debut Sahg CD , but it's with this new project that he really explores new territory sonically. The second track "Svartalvheims Djup" for example stands out in comparison to the rest of the material. Consider it a 7 minute, almost ambient sounding experiment but one that works quite well. The remainder of the CD's tracks are extremely harsh and uncompromising. What began as a side project for King could well become something more permanent because the material on Gleipnirs Smeder is definitely something fans of this genre of music will be interested in.
