GLITTERTIND | DJEVILSVART – SINGLE [NORWEGIAN VIKING FOLK METAL] REVIEW BY LUKE HAYHURST

Cover_Djevelsvart_Single

This year has seen the third full length opus from Norwegian Viking Folk Metal outfit Glittertind which goes by the name of “Djevilsvart” and this is the album track single release that accompanies it.

Weighing in at less than four minutes  this doesn’t give me a great deal to go on but what is evidently clear is that Glittertind have a fast flowing catchy sound, bereft of pretension and packing many a folk like moment of flute harmonies and melodies.

I’m not sure it’s really my type of thing on a personal level but there is no denying that the band make good energetic music, bouncy, airy and atmospheric and in places bordering on indie rock. not too shabby!

[7/10]
