"Don't listen to Andras N0 BRAINS of Denmark, whom has no ear for brilliance. Word to the wise, Andras, do your review in Danish cos' apparently English is not your bag.
Blodhemn is an intensely diverse work of genius. Any musicologist can tell this piece was naturally formulated (not contrived) as documentation of a Neurological breakdown. It casts aside religious malcontent and focuses on logical and historical specifications.
The fierce overtones create a path of enlightenment for myself and others, while quite a vast populous cannot fathom how exhilirating it truly is. The Gregorian-esque chants provide a surrealistic approach to the thematic Mythological aspects. The fact that they still remain true to their native language, mostly, sets them aside from certain outfits that evolved into an English usage such as Dimmu Borgir...
Which is nice for those not fluent in Norwegian and whom are too lazy to translate it, yet it takes away from the nostalgia factor. Dimmu's post-Stormblast efforts are great, but in a less monumental field of vision, respectively. The first 2 hold such great effortless merit on the listeners behalf. All of which must be delightfully in harmony with Satan, otherwise they should go "worship" "Him" and leave musicianship up to the EXPANDING METAL MASSES! (Oh, sweet Glory!)
Anyway, this is pure Blackened Norse Metal at it's most refined, BUY THIS RECORD, and for those that are not fluent in Norwegian, piss off! Or, just go to darklyrics.com and get translations printed out. Up The Irons!
