      Worth a look for fans of Blut Aus Nord and Reverence

      Released in 2006, 'Gleipnirs Smeder' is the first release by Jotanspur, a Norwegian black/ambient project consisting of Gorgoroth members King and Kvitrafn. By and large, the album consists of thudding, minimalist BM with a claustrophobic feel to it, hinting at Velvet Caccoon as well as possessing the disorienting feel of French industrial black metal band Blut Aus Nord, whilst it also has a depressive feel, recalling the torturous and depressive feel and stark, demented melodicisms of both Forgotten Tomb and Xasthur on occasion. This is merged in with passages of urgent, murky chugging and ominous and slowly-plodding industrial passages that again recall Blut Aus Nord, whilst ghostly clean nordic singing occasionally appears to soar above the gloom.

      The album is also filled with atmospheric sounds, such as the tricking of subterranean water, wolf howls, storm noises and the sounds of distant raging fires, and whilst hardly an original move it is executed with subtlety and adds well to the murky atmosphere of the album. Elswhere there are faster, more dynamic black metal passages that recall old Gorgoroth, if not as raw.

      Gleipnirs Smeder is nothing hugely original, but it is well put together and extremely enjoyable and atmospheric album with plenty of subtle charm, even if at 35 minutes it is a little on the short side.
