When Purity Through Fire releases Black Metal, the odds are quite in favour for the ones who will put their money on “Finland” as origin of the band. With Nôidva this is the case once again, this time with members of Sacrificium Carmen, The Watcher and Abbashaitan in the ranks.
With Laplandish Shamanism as theme on “Windseller”, the music is melodic and folkloric based on late 90s Black Metal. If you take some little bits of early Mithotyn and Windir and mix them with the Finnish Black Metal scene, along with a folkish chant interlude like “Häilän Joiku” you get “Windseller”, an EP which is not impressive but solid nevertheless.
