Hermodr/Self Titled/Fallen Empire Records/2012 Demo Review


  Hermodr  are  a  1  man  band  from  Sweden  that  plays  a  very  depressive  from  of  pagan  black  metal  and  this  is  a  review  of  their  self  titled  2012  demo  which  was  released  by  Fallen  Empire  Records.

  Drums  range  from  slow  to  mid  paced  playing  with  no  fast  drumming  or  blast  beats  being  present on  this  recording,  while  the  bass  playing  has  a  very  dark  tone  with  riffs  that  follow  the  riffing  that  are  coming  out  of  the  guitars.

  Rhythm  guitars  range  from  slow  to  mid  paced  depressive  black  metal  riffs  that  are  very  dark  and atmospheric  sounding  with  some  primitive  and  melodic  elements  being  thrown  into  the  riffing  at  times,  while  the  lead  guitars  are  very  melodic  sounding  atmospheric  black  metal  guitar  leads.

  Vocals  range  from  high  pitched  depressive  black  metal  screams  to  clean  singing  pagan  vocals  as  well  as  a  brief  spoken  word  part,  while  the  lyrics  are  written  in  Swedish  and  cover  Northern  Heritage  themes,  as  for  the  production  it  has  a  very  dark,  raw  and  primitive  sound  to  it  with  the  songs  being  long  and  epic  in  length.

  In  my  opinion  Hermodr  are  a  very  great  sounding  atmospheric,  depressive  pagan/black  metal band and  if  you  are  a  fan  of  this  musical  genre,  you  should  check  out  this  demo.  RECOMMENDED  TRACK  "Slutet  Pa  Hans  Sista  Resa".  RECOMMENDED  BUY.
