12 Inch



Hauntingly beautiful, crushingly heavy black metal debut LP from Sweden.

I’ll be honest, most contemporary black metal does little for me.  But when it is done right – musically, aesthetically, ideologically – it can be a very potent force.  And rest assured Dödsrit definitely do it right.  On this their recently re-pressed debut album, Dödsrit masterfully fuse uplifting crust punk melodies, and the driving intensity of d-beat, with a technically accomplished black metal base to powerful effect.

Dödsrit is a project created by Christoffer Öster from Totem Skin. Dödsrit blends atmospheric black metal with the rawness of crust, the shivering melodies created in the deep forests on the outskirts of Borlänge, Sweden. The soundscape of the album ranges from raw aggression to doomy heaviness, laced throughout with unsettling guitar melodies. Intense grinding shares space with quiet and reverent moments, but the sonic landscape is always filled with emotion.
