Myrholt are a solo project from Norway that plays a Norwegian style of black metal and this is a review of his self released 2017 album "Med Samme Naal, Under Samme Maane".
An almost silent sound starts off the album before getting very heavy while the vocals are mostly grim black metal screams along with the riffs also using a great amount of melody as well as keyboards also being added into certain sections of the recording and all of the musical instruments sound very powerful.
When the music speeds up a decent amount of blast beats and tremolo picking can be heard which gives the songs a more raw feeling while the music is very heavily rooted in the 90's second wave Norwegian tradition along with the solos and leads being done in a very melodic fashion.
The songs also bring in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts while the synths they are utilized give the songs more of an epic and atmospheric feeling along with a brief use of clean playing and spoken word parts and when clean vocals are utilized they give the music more of a pagan metal feeling.
Myhrholt plays a style of black metal that is very heavily rooted in the old school Nordic tradition, the production sounds very dark and raw while the lyrics cover Nature and Nordic Paganism themes.
In my opinion Myrholt are a very great sounding Norwegian black metal solo project and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this recording. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Merkur" "Tanke Og Minne" and "Ved Yggrasils Tredje Rot". 8 out of 10.
