Maledictus Eris

Maledictus Eris by Svartsot
Released: Jul 2011
Label: Napalm Records
Throughout their third album, these Danes temper their dense, troll-grumbled black-metal rumble with what sound like centuries-old folk melodies from the North European forest -- often played on fancy flutes right out of Jethro Tull, and often supplemented by a flotilla of drunken sailors getting a rowdy shout on. "Staden" opens the record with babies crying deep in its mix; "Kunsten At Do" starts with a Velvet Underground-like, almost Middle Eastern drone; "Spigrene" partakes in the acoustic anguish of a medieval Christmas carol. Marching feet and coughing fits also figure into the equation.
