At this point, we have had enough Icelandic black metal sophomore albums to see some sort of pattern.

Quite a change in style (especially the vocals) but I love it already. Sick riffing like omfg

Lots of riffing and energy but I would have like some contrast to that, there is a lightness here that doesnt suit my taste, not sure if its the drum sound or the overly clear production or the bass or all.

Agree about the lightness. The album title does translate to 'Ecstasy' after all so I was expecting positive vibes. Didn't really care for this on my first listen (granted I was listening on shitty earbuds) but its definitely growing on me.

This is fucking insanely awesome. I expected nothing really, and, wow, best BM in ages.

Change the production and it's perfect.
Euphoric and triumphant riffing, which is quite a change from the supposed icelandic BM sound, yet extremely memorable. There are almost Iron Maiden vibes on that second track.

But really, that production nearly kills it. A dirty-remaster would be most welcome. I'd be interested in checking the initial recording that was supposed to be "ruined" by bad equipment. Probably more suitable.

Agree with you vombatus, though I think I need a few more listens.

I thought that interview on bardo was a little cri gy, probably should have stayed mysterious.

Kinda sounds mostly like bog standard viking metal to me I really dislike the vocals, he sounds like he needs a Fisherman's Friend.

I know this sentence supposed to be funny, but for me is fucking pathetic. I would name a few bands from your favourites that have way worse vocals than this, but why should I even bother?

You're welcome to go ahead, I'm not really bothered if people don't like vocals / bands of stuff I like BTW, a Fisherman's Friend is a cough mint, in case you thought it was something offensive. The vocals are just pretty bad to me is all.

Lolol, tbh I wasn't sure if people outside the UK even know what those cough sweets are. Probably sounds a bit weird if you didn't.

I don't like the vocals all that much either, but I think the music is more interesting than last time around. If the mix was better I would probably give it some more listens. Shame, maybe it will get a remix at some point.

What's the story behind that?

They already recorded the album in 2017 I think. According to Dagur the final result was not satisfying and they ended up re-recording the whole thing a year later.

Interesting. Weird that they felt a re-mix wouldn't have been sufficient, something must have gone seriously wrong in the recording process then.

Fisherman's Friends original are my favourite. Am more or less addicted to them.

The last time I tried one was when I was a kid. I remember begging my parents to let me have a pack, and they kept saying that I wouldn't like them. Eventually they gave in and let me have a pack. I tried one and started crying and didn't try any more. Weirdly I think I can still remember how they taste and how strong they were

Dutch ads for the stuff goes something along the lines of... shows a sailor crying and then a slogan saying "strong stuff Fisherman's Friends, right?"

This Dutch one is the best. We had the same here too.

The vocals, while not bad, are definitely not the album's strongest point. I don't mind them at all though.

Well, I'll be damned, but I can't agree with people complaining with the production. For me it's perfect. You can hear everything without losing rawness, and to me its one of the major improvements over the last album. That, and the goddamn riffs, absolutely hooked to this!

Loving this album, probably my favorite black metal release so far this year. Best from Iceland since "Flesh Catherial" IMO, if not better!
