This is yet another kickass death metal band from Sweden. The vocals are gruff and angry and the bass and drums pound your head. The lyrics are dark and the music is heavy. This band isn't your standard gore and guts kind of guys. They apparently have studied up on the Vikings and Norse mythology which of course provides some great material for songs and even educates you a bit. As a matter of fact Midvinterblot is some old holiday that celebrates the winter sun's renewal. There's one song on here for your Lord Of the Rings fans called "We Must Join With Him". There are definitely some great catchy riffs on this record that just pound the shit out of your speakers. It starts off heavy and ends heavy and I'm sure you'll have to pick yourself off the floor when it's done. I know I did.
