Not the other Varg. The Frosthardr CD came in the mail on Friday.
"Varg": Scathing, relentless, destructive black metal. I love this song and its infectious power. Are the guitars tuned pretty low or is my ear deceiving me?
"Tortured": Another excellent song, but I'm glad it was left off Maktesløs. That EP is pretty close to perfect the way it is; 12 extra minutes may have offset the balance. This song may appear on Distorted Waveform Output next week instead of "Varg" or "Thrash Against Sin" if we have time. I just dig a long, frosty black metal tune to chill me out.
"Thrash Against Sin": I need to hear the One Bad Pig version before I can really form an opinion. On its own, it's a catchy, energetic, excellent thrash tune with those highly memorable fast punkish riffs. I'm just curious how it compares to the original.
Overall, this is amazing. Between this and a couple other releases, I think 2007 could put Christian metal on the mainstream map. I really hope the strong art keeps flowing!
