Nordvargr are a solo project from Sweden that plays a mixture of industrial and dark ambient and this is a review of his 2018 album "Metempsychosis" which will be released on March 30th by Cyclic Law.
Atmospheric sounding drones start off the album while stringed instruments can also be heard at times along with some tracks also mixing in the more dark and underground style of industrial and when growls are utilized they add in touches of black and death metal and bass guitars can also be heard in the background briefly.
Elements of ambient can also be heard at times along with the melodic chants giving the music a ritualistic feeling when they are utilized while whispers when they are utilized briefly gives the music more of a ritualistic feeling and as the album progresses ritualistic drums and percussion are added onto the recording.
Nordvargr plays a musical style that takes dark ambient, industrial and ritual music and mixes them together with a touch of black and death metal to create a sound of his own, the production sounds very dark while the lyrics cover darkness and occultism themes.
In my opinion Nordvargr are a very great sounding mixture of dark ambient, death industrial and ritual music and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this solo project. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Metempsychosis' "Invocation For A Malicious Spirit" "Sweet Death Triumphant" and "Livet Tar Slut". 8 out of 10.
