NATTFOG - Mustan Auringon Riitti - CD - Hammer of Hate - 2012

review by: Roberto Martinelli

Mustan Auringon Riitti is a grower. It seemed generic and unremarkably muddy at first, but by listen #3 the albumís general MO of relaxed tempo black metal with a tinge of Pagan pride has become engaging. The semi-melodic music weaves a fine spell as its musical story becomes clear with some familiarity and volume, and the enveloping low-fi buzzing of the guitars achieves a pleasant state of black metal bliss. The last track of Pagan synth horns evokes the black metal Viking tradition, with some sonic reminiscence to the final track on Darkthroneís Panzerfaust. However, as nice as a listen to Nattfog can be, it is doubtful that Mustan Auringon Riitti will ever mark much in oneís lasting memory beyond being a solid, true-to-form black metal record. (6.666/10)
