NornÝr - Verdandi DigiCD/LP
Release date: February 22nd, 2019
NornÝr, live as well as on

of nostalgia. Their German origins notwithstanding, this is Norwegian
Black Metal the way it was played in the 90s - the way it should be
played. With their debut full length, as well as their fantastic live
gigs, NornÝr show that they are a force to be reckoned with in the
German Black Metal underground.

"...die Riffs [sind] exakt das, was man an dieser Gruppe so lieben
gelernt hat. Brachial, melodi÷s und atmosphńrisch spielen sich die 7
Songs in Rage und behandeln Geschichten der nordischen Mythologie.
[...] FŘr diese Scheibe kann ich nur eine Kaufempfehlung ausrichten."
"Overall, this was a great nod
to the themes and elements that the genre was built on, but also adding
in their own twists of personality so that you can feel where they are
coming from individually as a band. They play with confidence and
professionalism and I think you will like what they have to offer here."
