One of my favourite black metal discoveries of late is Nivhel, a two man band from Sweden. I’m currently obsessed with the track Vrede, from their 2013 demo Ur Vrede Född. It’s everything a sublime black metal track needs to be to have a lasting effect on the listener. Listen and you will understand.
‘In present society where
mankind is being manipulated
by moral-preaching posture
born out of christianity, a change is
vital. Nivlhel is a heathen reincarnation
of the individual strength that will
be what sifts the wheat from the chaff
when ragnarok arrives’ – Nivlhel.
