Thyrgrim – Vermächtnis

thyrgrim – vermächtnis

Thyrgrim already released a handful of albums during their career, always standing strong as bearers of the past. A not forgotten black metal movement, where black metal was more than fashion and experiments (for the latter I disagree a bit). The Germans continue to explore their territories in old fashioned black metal with pagan influences (musically and lyrically). Sometimes it`s freezing cold, with a portion of anger and misanthropy, in other parts it is more a dramatic story been told with beautiful melodies transporting the listener into pagan vastlands. They don`t want you to explore new landscapes, but show you more of the old stories that might have been forgotten by humankind. The more tenacious, melancholic songs and parts are the strong moments here, where breakable emotions collapse over the listener and where winter`s depression frozens one`s heart forever (an absolute highlight in the middle of the record). The album continues that way, alternating between heavy melodic hymns and rapid-fire artillery to spread the pagan fire. German steel, heavy and strong,. Well crafted, top! (DPF)
