Staff review by
Troy Killjoy

Vinterfader and Narstrand are back again with another excellent take on atmospheric black metal with the typical pagan themes and hints of experimentation becoming synonymous with Dråpsnatt. Fans of the band will not be disappointed, and newcomers are urged to check this out immediately.

  I listened to the song "Klardrömmar" and I'm very impressed (haven't heard of this band before). Great harsh vocals (kicks me in the face), nice atmosphere and all very well produced. What more do you want?. I must hear the whole album asap.

Rating: 8 Nice album. Atmospheric and easy-to-get-into.

Rating: 9 Despite my high expectations for this album, seeing as I adored the previous ones, I was not disappointed. I'm under the impression that Dråpsnatt just keeps on evolving for the better with each release - while not straying too far from their core sound.

One of the most interesting aspects of the bands music in my opinion is its ability to convey so many different emotions, without it coming across as forced. Anger and sadness are maybe the two most obvious ones but because of the subtle yet significant use of the keyboard the music can be very relaxing as well. Another thing worth mentioning are the vocals which are stellar. The tortured wailings adds a depressive touch to the atmosphere while the clean vocals, which could have easily ruined things, spice things up in terms of variety.

All in all, Skelepht is a really nice addition to the already great discography of Dråpsnatt and I can barely wait to see what the band comes up with next.

  Pagan, eh... Interesting.
