Glittertind - Djevelsvart LP (Black vinyl)
Djevelsvart serves as Glittertind’s most mature release to date. It’s less party hardy tavern folk metal and instead focuses on dark melodies and has a rather haunting atmosphere. The band still kicks things up with heavier tracks, but the focus is on serene quietude, only interspersed with heavier and punk infused tracks. While there are a few small stumbles here and there, Sandvik and crew really have crafted an excellent album that is very difficult to pigeonhole. This could appeal to fans of the folk-driven harmonies of Elvenking, the acoustic interplay of Agalloch and the vocalization of Falconer. Check out with an open mind.
