The album The Dead Stones is almost an hour, and there is a lot for an album with pagan black metal. The band is Nordland, and with Vorh as sole musicians. The Dead Stones is the fifth full length CD since the foundation seven years ago. The album has a clearer sound than before but it is still a raw music.The bass is very present and gives power to the music.
The song Leave My Body To The Crows, and there is a lot going on here!
Nordland and Vorth has always had a conceptual lyric and built the music around it so that all the albums are different. On The Dead Stones Vorh explore death with themes from pagan realm and mysterious tales. The new album is true to the black metal tradition, but the compositions are often advanced, and with hints to avant garde and the progressive sphere. Nordland stands out in black metal, and offers exciting music.
