WYRD Heathen Gatefold LP (black)
1st album of this Finnish black metal combo.
On one hand, we have the pretty harsh black metal laced with chanting vocals which partition the heavily layered screams. On the other hand, there is a sense of ambient carved into the music (...) Wyrd does a simply astounding job in doing just that, keeping you fully enthralled in a song which takes up, in today’s society, a considerable amount of time. It is pagan black metal at its finest, both dark and epic at the same time. It is, in my personal sense, a masterpiece in every sense and meaning of the word, an album of such astounding proportions that it simply cannot, and will not, be replicated again by anyone.
