Födelse is the Swedish word for birth. You could associate with something new for example a first release of a new band but the Swedish Black Metal band Murdryck is far from being a new band. Founded in Vänersborg they spread their furious music since 1999 and “Födelsen” is their fifth release and their second full-length album.
Murdryck doesn‘t surprise with something new but is able to give classic Black Metal a nice progressive twist. “Födelsen” delivers high quality, aggressive and nasty Black Metal and there are depressive and atmospheric flourishes and plenty of traditional in-your-face assaults. This creates a fantastic journey through the bands musical abilities with exciting turns. In my opinion this album is a must-have in a Black Metalhead‘s collection. (HaCeBo)
