Considering the length of both anthems on this EP, I am happy that my new job affords a 40 minutes drive each way. That gives me the time to enjoy the epic black metal monuments in full length as it should be. They are dramatic, massive, full of atmosphere and varied enough to stay interesting for quite a while. Modern black metal at its best!
Favorite track: Eis zu Stein II: Schweigen.
This band is incredibly refreshing, and innovative in a genre that has become rather stale. Grima transports you to the snow covered wilderness of Russia, and leaves you to fend for yourself. It's not your everyday, run-of-the-mill atmospheric black metal. It's truly something more. Their use of various instruments you seldom hear applied to black metal speaks to their level of creativity. 10/10 album! aliciakay47
absolutely loving this new, more natural sound. their first albums always had an intentionally cold feel to them, which i enjoyed, but this new sunlight-filled album really comes into it's own.
they keep the mix tight and blurred but now the natural feel of a live drummer is more pronounced.
this is how the mighty EARTH AND PILLARS needed to sound.
crazy good album, and old fans will find this a refreshing new sound. Glitzy Límon
