Quebec, Canada's Nordheim have returned with a new recording which continues their mixture of folk, melodic black/death and power metal and this is a review of their 2017 album "RapThor" which will be released on November 24th by Maple Metal Records.
Heavy and melodic riffing starts off the album along with some symphonic elements a few seconds later while the faster sections of the songs also bring in a great mixture of blast beats as well as the vocals also bringing in a great amount of black metal screams and the solos and leads also use a great amount of melody.
Death metal growls can also be heard at times while the songs also bring in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts along with some clean vocals being added into certain sections of the recording that also bring in a touch of power metal and the fast riffs also bring in a decent amount of tremolo picking and as the album progresses some songs also bring in clean playing and folk instruments and the closing track is very long and epic in length.
Nordheim creates another recording that remains true to their mixture of folk, power, melodic black and death metal, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover bacon and dinosaur themes.
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from Nordheim and if you are a fan of folk, power, melodic black and death metal, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Troll Riding A Raptor" "Black Witch Rises" and "Dragonthorn". 8 out of 10.
