Nidhoggr are a band from Sweden that plays a very raw form of pagan/black metal and this is a review of their self released 2015 demo "Turn to Ash".
Thunder sounds start off the demo before going into a very fast, raw and melodic black metal direction t hat also brings in a great amount of blast beats and grim screams and you can hear all of the musical instruments that are present on the recording along with the songs bringing in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts.
Most of the music is very heavily rooted in the second wave 90's style and the solos and leads are very dark, melodic and atmospheric sounding and the whole ep remains true to a very raw, heavy and old school style of black metal from beginning to ending of the reocording with no clean or soft parts ever being utilized.
Nidhoggr plays a style of black metal that is very raw, melodic and old school sounding in the 90's Northern European style, the production sounds very raw and heavy while the lyrics cover misanthropic and Norse Paganism themes.
In my opinion Nidhoggr are a very great sounding raw pagan/black metal band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this demo. RECOMMENDED TRACK "Malice Striker". 8 out of 10.
