Naðra – Allir Vegir Til Glötunar (Review)

NadraNaðra are an Icelandic Black Metal band and this is their début album.

This is noisy and aggressive Black Metal that manages to create a frosted, dangerous atmosphere. It’s a passionate display of Blackened spite that sees the band explore their grim musical vision with apparent relish.

There’s plenty of high speed attack, but Naðra also take the time to slow things down when they need to, leading to Allir Vegir Til Glötunar having sufficient depth to hold attention throughout the 40 minute playing time.

The singer seems just one short step away from a full break from reality as he tears through the material with maniacal haste; even when the music slows down, his intensity does not.

Allir Vegir Til Glötunar only has 5 songs on it but there’s enough content here to satiate. The tracks have that wonderful secret ingredient that’s essential to underground Black Metal and makes releases like this so special. Listening to this, it’s easy to feel the modern world slip away and to become absorbed in far away places full of threat and mystery.
