Nordheim are a band from Montreal, Quebec, Canada that plays a mixture of folk and melodic black/death metal and this is a review of their 2013 album "Refill" which was released by Maple Metal Records.
Drums range from slow, mid paced to fast drumming with some blast beats being utilized at times, while the keyboards bring a very dark, atmospheric, symphonic and medieval sound to the recording, as for the bass playing it has a very dark tone with riffs that follow the riffing that are coming out of the guitars.
Rhythm guitars range from slow, mid paced to fast riffs that combine melodic black and death metal with folk to create a sound of their own, while the lead guitars are very melodic sounding pagan metal guitar solos and leads, as for the acoustic guitars which are only utilized briefly use finger picking and full chords to enhance the folk music elements of the album.
Vocals range from high pitched black metal s creams to clean singing pagan vocals as well as some back up shouts and a brief use of deep death metal growls, while the lyrics cover Paganism, Fantasy and Drinking themes, as for the production it has a very strong, powerful, heavy and professional sound to it.
In my opinion this is another great sounding album from Nordheim and if you are a fan of this band, you should enjoy this recording. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Ov Frost And Ice" "Get Drunk Or Die Tryin'" "The Grief" and "as Shadows Pass By". RECOMMENDED BUY.
