Lidskjavl are hailing from Madrid, Spain and this is their first full length opus. There are nine songs on this release. Music of Lidskjavl is melodic black metal with Viking Norse lore influenced lyrics. Besides black metal there are some death metal influences mainly in growled guttural vocals, in fact dual screeched and growled vocal lines make this effort an interesting listen coupled with aggressive blast beats, but also epic and melodic hooks and grandiose song structures with fantastic guitar melodies. My personal favorites are Berserker, Renegade of God. Clever use of samples, like clanking swords, horses and bells are always welcomed and I love it. This is a strong debut.
