Harmdaud are a solo project from Sweden that plays an atmospheric mixture of black and death metal and this is a review of his self released 2017 album "Blinda Dodens Barn".
Melodic riffing and blast beats start off the album along with some grim black metal screams a few seconds alter while the solos and leads also bring in a great amount of melody as well as the songs also bringing in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts and death metal growls are also added into certain sections of the recording.
All of the musical instruments on the recording have a very powerful sound to them while the synths also gives the songs more of an atmospheric feeling along with the tremolo picking adding in more of a raw black metal style during the faster sections of the songs and some songs also bring in a small amount of clean playing.
Harmdaud plays a musical style that takes an atmospheric form of black metal and mixes it with dark and melodic death metal to create a sound of his own, the production sounds very professional for being a self released recording while the lyrics are written in Swedish and cover dark themes.
In my opinion Harmdaud are a very great sounding atmospheric and melodic mixture of black and death metal and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this solo project. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Vagens Slut" "Andetag" and "Memento Mori". 8 out of 10.
