Nortt - Gudsforladt


Genre: Black Metal, Funeral Doom, DSBM
For fans of: Absum, Ahab, Evoken

You'll be hard pressed to find a more bleak, depressing and pulverizing black metal album than this one. Nortt play slow and heavy on this, with little regard for your mental wellbeing. With a guitar tone that sounds like ten billion angry wasps trapped in an amp, and guttural raspy vocals that are barely there, this is the sort of listen that just encompasses you entirely with it's sorrowful dirges and oppressively slow tempo. There's a wonderfully melancholic symphonic intro, and strings and pianos feature in most of the songs adding an even more sombre element to an already bleak and downtrodden album.
