Despite numerous demo and split releases, it has been a full decade since the release of Algor’s debut album. Now though through Hexencave Productions a sophomore album has been unleashed entitled Hierofánia.

From the off Algor produce highly intensive cacophonous black metal punctuated by cold, unflinching riffs. From slow cautious beginnings comes fast paced aggressive black metal savagery with deeply atmospheric undertones. Sporting ravenous vocals, furious drumming and vehement riff-age interspersed with sounds of nature and melodic interludes, Algor produce a well performed and satisfyingly diverse style of black metal!

Hierofánia then is a highly enjoyable album, one of subtle graces combined with ferocious aggression and barbaric savagery! Make sure you experience it.
