From The Lone Winters Cold

NSP 082 :  Augrimmer - From The Lone Winters Cold CD

Release date: September 4th, 2009

After their debut MCD on Northern Silence earlier this year Augrimmer return with a simply wonderful piece of
Northern Black Metal that a fan of this kind of music simply has to love. And in passing they show how a band
can nearly perfect their style in a just few months. This is one of the albums that imo truly carries the vibes of
Black Metal, the spirit & atmosphere that makes this music singular & exceptional to the sympathetic
listener. The music has everything - the grimness of old Norwegian bands such as early Immortal and Isvind as
well as the more melodic and lead guitar-oriented Swedish kind, perfected by bands such as Thy Primordial,
Dissection and early Setherial. Just take my personal fave "At Winterdawn" as example. For the band the song
is good but nothing special, for me it's one of the greatest Black Metal songs I've ever heard from a German band!
When I first listened to that song on their demo MCD, those haunting melodies of the the lead guitars carried by
a cold Black Metal winterstorm of riffing, I immediately got what I call the "Nord-Feeling", this rare perception of
sheer brilliance that I first experienced while listening to Setherial's monumental debut album. Maybe it's just my
own opinion but I dare say if you're a fan of the classic mid-90s Black Metal from Norway & Sweden you have to
get this album! It will keep growing on you with every spin and at some point it will inevitably blow you away!
