Alverg - Elde

The first impression on this album which paints a vague sepia image almost like a morbid child's fairy tale is given by a discordant piano which drops you right into the fury of elde's methodical and visceral music. The production is quite good despite a slight lack of volume and presence in the bottom end such as kick drums and bass but compliments the music which for the most part sits between Naglfar/Dark Funeral and Dark Throne. The guitar has a smooth crunch and sits just above the drums which provides driving rhythms often accompanied by melodic lead overlays, forbidding drop sections drizzled with organic yet guttural vocals.
