      A decent but not great ambient black/doom release

      I've always struggled a bit with the output of Nortt, a one-man Danish ambient project that attempts to combine the aesthetics of minimalist black metal and the most lethargic and morbid aspects of doom, or "Pure Depressive Black Funeral Doom Metal" as Nortt himself calls it. A few bands, such as France's Mourning Dawn and Germany's Bethlehem (Dark Metal era) have done a great job of combining the two genres, but Nortt's work, whilst decent, has always sounded like neither one thing or the other.

      This trend is continued in his 2007 album 'Galgenfrist', though whilst it may not be anything groundbreakingly original it still makes for an enjoyable enough ambient listen, combining windswept, drawn out and depressive funeral doom riffs with tormented rasped vocals and despondently plodding drums, with a cavernous feel to it that reminds of Catacombs' 'In the Depths of Ry'leh; album. Musically Galgenfrist is nothing to write home about, and it has none of the gradually building subtle majesty of say Skepticism, but as depressive ambient music you could certainly do a lot worse.
