Voice Of Midnight/Bifrost/Metal Scrap Records/2011 CD Review


  Voice Of Midnight are a band from Russia that plays viking black metal mixed in with a great amount of folk elements and this is a review of their 2011 album "Bifrost" which was released by Metal Scrap Records.

Drums range from slow, mid paced to fast drumming with some blast beats being thrown into the music, while the bass playing has a very strong and powerful sound with primitive riffing that dominates throughout the recording, as for the synths when they are utilized they bring a very epic and atmospheric sound to the music.

Rhythm guitars range from slow, mid paced to fast riffs that combine black and viking metal together mixed in with a great amount of dark sounding melodies as well as some traditional metal influences, while the lead guitars are very melodic sounding guitar solos and leads, as for the acoustic guitars when they are utilized they use finger picking to bring a pagan/folk sound to the music.

Vocals are mostly grim sounding black/viking metal screams mixed in with a brief use of clean singing male and female vocals as well as a brief use of whispers, while the lyrics cover Viking history and mythology with the lyrics being written in a mixture Of English and Russian, as for the production it has a very strong, heavy and powerful sound and you can hear all of the musical instruments that are present on this recording.

In my opinion Voice Of Midnight are a very great sounding atmospheric black/viking metal band and if you are a fan of this style, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Voice Of War" "Rune Stone" and "Regnar And Helga". RECOMMENDED BUY.
