Forgotten Tomb – …And Don’t Deliver Us From Evil

Forgotten Tomb
…And Don’t Deliver Us From Evil
Released 30th October, 2012
Black/Doom Metal
Released via Agonia Records

I don’t know what it is about Italian metal bands, but for some reason they always seem to be on point. This goes for Forgotten Tomb with the release of their newest album …And Don’t Deliver Us From Evil. This is a beautifully written black/doom album with amazing musicianship and thrilling songs that will appeal to almost any fan of metal. Only being a seven track album, each song was heavy and melodic with such fullness to them which made the album easy to listen to.

A memorable track for me was …And Don’t Deliver Us From Evil just because of the changes from a slow tempo to a fast tempo heard throughout the song and the way it kept my attention even though the song itself is almost 8 minutes long. Usually band have a hard time transitioning fast and slow parts in songs, but I feel that the way Forgotten Tomb had done it with this song and a couple other songs such as Love Me Like You’d Love The Death and Deprived. I also love the use of clean vocals in the beginning of Adrift which only adds to the diversity of this album.

I actually started listening to this band fairly recently and I was impressed with their other albums and I am now just as impressed with the release of this album. ….And Don’t Deliver Us From Evil is a very well rounded album that incorporates many different musical elements and intertwines them flawlessly into the songs. The mix of faster, hard hitting black metal riffs with the more somber, melodic, and doomier parts makes this album beautiful and dark.

Blodarv debut second track from new album

Posted in News with tags , , , on 11th August 2012 by Nico Solheim-Davidson, the North Sea Poet

With a new album Gâst set for release later this year on Selfmutilation Services, Danish Black Metallers Blodarv have debuted a second track from what will be the band’s fourth full-length album.  Unlike the previous track I Blaek Og Blod, which recently had its debut as a music video, the lyrics to the new track, Surrounded by Dust, are in English and the track can be heard on BLODARV’s SoundCloud page here.

The music and lyrics of Blodarv have always represented a very personal aspect of founder and front man Hugin’s life and beliefs.  Writing both in English and Danish he gives voice to his deepest thoughts and emotions through his poetry, which in turn becomes the lyrics to his music.  According Hugin  Surrounded by Dust is in a way much more representative of the album as a whole: “The I Blaek Og Blod video caught some of our fans by surprise as the track is not as dark as they have come to expect from us, but as always in Blodarv we create various atmospheres, to fit the music to the lyrics, and Surrounded by Dust takes us firmly back into the darkness.   It is, in fact, one of the slower tracks on the album and is one of my personal favourites.  We finished recording the guitars for the track on the 5th of August and mixed and engineered it over the next few days, so it’s ‘smoking hot” in every sense of the word”.

Blodarv’s next live appearance will be at the Club Sick in Odense, Denmark on the 15th September supporting Impaled Nazarene.
