[11] Windir - Likferd

Windir to me has always been one of the best melodic black metal bands out there, if you wish to call it that. This band is basically the Wintersun of black metal. This is the last album that was made by the band (RIP Valfar). Most of the music comes along rather smoothly and in an above average manner. There are parts in certain songs that are truly magical and if you are patient enough you will get to hear some of them. In case it means something to you, this has very good production. Worth checking out the sample song for fans of bands like Wintersun and Ensiferum. +1 point for the truly remarkable moments throughout the album. Other than that it is solid. I have to say though, every time I listen to this it just keeps getting better! I want to emphasize once more though that some parts in this album are truly magical. This doesn't make very good background music. You get far more out of it if you pay attention to it. Track 5 has to be my favorite. Amazing...

Archives Rating: 91% (2 of reviewers)
My Rating: 6/10 - Good
Note: I'm switching over to this rating system because to me it makes a lot more sense. Also note that most scales place boring bands at 7, okay bands at 8, good bands at 9, and so on. That's not the way mine works. I do have the whole scale already set out but I think it would be more fun not to share it and you can just be surprised when an album does reach a high (or low) that has never been reached before. Also I'm sure you've all been spoiled with easy rating systems and will greet this one with a breath of fresh air, to go beyond the the curse of the 10...



1. Resurrection of the Wild
2. Martyrium
3. Despot
4. Blodssvik
5. Fagning
6. On the Mountain of Goats

[12] Nachtreich - Sturmgang

Nachtreich play extremely melodic and darkened neoclassical music. Lingering in the underground around a small collection of shockingly soulful and expressive black metal bands, Nachtreich is perhaps one of the most amazing among them. This album is something that should be listened to from beginning to end, but there is a sample song available that is not contained on the album that you can listen to so you know whether you like it or not before delving into it. The production here is great. The variety is immense. The melodies are incredibly deep. Some instruments used are the keyboards, the guitar (for rhythm and building up the music only), the violin, and the cello (which is perhaps the main force). Unless you really don't like classical music do give the sample song a *full* listen. If you enjoyed it then find a time to sit down, turn off the lights, and listen to the full album (uploaded by me). Also I almost forgot to mention, there are no vocals.

Archives Rating: 100% (1)
My Rating: 8/10 - Masterpiece
Note: There are actually 2 100% ratings for this album at the archives but one of them is my rating so I exclude it.



1. Im Sturmwind
2. In die Ferne
3. Abschied (Ein letzter Gruß...)
4. Der verlorene Weg
5. Von Sturm getrieben
6. Erinnerungen
Total Time: 55:10

Sample Song:
Nachtreich - Herbstrot
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9vdNKAFmWUY
Note: This song is not on the album, but it is an example of what is to come. I believe this song is off a various artists CD that the band's label released and so it is, more or less, a Sturmgang song. The reason I put this one here for the sample song is because Sturmgang is not a collection of short stories, it is a book.

Both albums are pure joy, but I think Likferd is Windir's weakest album (though still a solid 7 out of 10 in my view). 1184 is their masterpiece. I know it's sacrilege, but I actually like Cor Scorpii more than Windir!

Yeah I've heard 1184 and liked it a lot. Honestly I don't know which one I like more but I'm really liking Likferd at the moment. I have the CD in my computer right now. I haven't heard their first full-length yet but I'll need to some time.

I'm hearing a little bit of Cor Scorpii right now and it sounds very good. It is different from Windir which is good because I hate it when you look over to a band and have to think, "Well this band does it better." I'll look into them.

Nachtreich is totally good

i guess they use a viola (not a cello) but i certainly couldn't tell the difference

it's folky neoclassical metal with some ambient parts.

the classical elements got me thinking about profanum

also, i could see fans of this also really liking Virgin Black
