  • Description

    It has been a long eight year stretch between releases for NAGLFAR, but like any slumbering beast, NAGLFAR have returned ferocious and hungry with their seventh full length album “Cerecloth”. Recorded and mixed by NAGLFAR guitarist Marcus Norman at Wolf’s Lair Studio, and mastered by Dan Swanö at Unisound, the underlying musical and lyrical themes of “Cerecloth” were succinctly described by guitarist Andreas Nilsson: “The usual death and destruction.” Judging from Andreas’ curt description, and the grim cover art from Kristian Wåhlin, certain death is exactly what “Cerecloth” provides. The opening track drops like a bloodthirsty guillotine. It is a violent beginning, and a fitting introduction to the subsequent eight tracks. Like a poisonous spider meticulously weaving its web, there is beauty and elegance to “Cerecloth”’s black metal malevolence. But, like the aforementioned venomous arachnid, in “Cerecloth” there is also an element of spine-tingling terror and weighted dread. The melodious underpinning in tracks like “Horns” and “Like Poison For The Soul” could almost be angelic if it weren't for their slashing and sneering black metal. Tracks like “The Dagger In Creation” and “A Sanguine Tide Unleashed” rip with an audio attack that is unrelenting and frigidly cold. NAGLFAR also has the means to reign in their fury with a slower sound on a few tracks. “Cry of the Serafim” lurches and lumbers like some grotesque, ethereal H.P. Lovecraft creature, and “Necronaut” has a crawling, yet triumphant dirge. Altogether, fast or slow, “Cerecloth”’s black metal barrage takes zero prisoners.
