Kromheim are a solo project from Poland that plays a mixture of viking, folk and melodic death metal and this is a review of their self titled and self released 2020 ep.
Melodic guitar leads start off the ep while the riffs also add in a great amount of melody and the vocals are a mixture of growls and s creams which also add in touch of black metal. The music also brings in a great amount of Swedish influences and when t he music speeds up a great amount of blast beats can be heard.
Throughout the recording you can also hear a decent mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts while elements of folk are also added into some parts of the recording. When synths are utilized they also add in more of a symphonic style along with some spoken word parts also being used briefly, all of the musical instruments also have a very powerful sound to them as well as one track also introducing clean vocals onto the recording.
Kromheim plays a musical style that takes folk, viking, melodic black and death metal and mixes them together to create a sound of his own. The production sounds very old school while the lyrics cover Vikings and Medieval Fantasy themes.
In my opinion Kromheim is a very great sounding mixture of viking, folk, melodic death and black metal and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this solo project. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Prayer" and "Storm Of The Gods". 8 out of 10.
