Nachtzeit – Sagor I Natten (2016)

cover

As yet another side project from the man behind Lustre, today we have Nachtzeit and his ‘solo’ project under the same unleashing its EP “Sagor I Natten”. Focusing more on intensity, this release will remind you a bit of Lustre, but with a more destructive and raw edge. If you are a fan of one-man battalions, we can assure you that this release is a worthy addition to your collection.

Wasting no time to pummel the listener into submission, “Ett fjärran mine” is full of ferocity in the shape of blistering riffs and devilish harsh vocals. The track sets a nice groove in terms of tempo that is nicely continued by the relentless “De färdas genom natten”. Nachtzeit’s vocals are the perfect match for the wall of sound created by the hectic riffing. The drumming on the other side sounds bit plain, when you compare the rest of the music, but it gets the job done.

Changing the pace of things, the instrumental “Över myr och mark” gives the listener a much needed breather before jumping into the melodic brutality of “Där allting har sin början”. This last track has a nice melodic touch to it that showcases a different perspective than the first two tracks, but that is equally ferocious.

Overall if you like Black Metal which features intense riffing that creates a wall of sound, “Sagor I Natten” will be one of your favorite releases to close 2016. While there are certain similarities to Lustre and some of Nachtzeit’s other projects, this release stands on its own and gives the listener good replay value.
