Fornjot / LTD Digipak
|Release Date||Nov 6, 2015|
Limited Edition Digipak incl. Bonus Track. Debut Full-Length Album from the Swedish Psychedelic Doom Metal Band.
In 2003, the Swedish Gothic/Doom-sextet Draconian found its home at Napalm Records. Over a decade later, and in natural progression, Napalm has also secured a home for the juvenile new band and brain-child of Draconian guitarist Daniel Arvidsson, Mammoth Storm. Living up to the name, Arvidsson takes on bass and vocal responsibilities here with even more oppressive and bleak sounding doom and droning. Following up the band's self-released debut EP, Rite Of Ascension (2014), Fornjot, the band’s full length debut, draws its name from the ancient Norse mythology: Fornjotr, a giant and ruler of Finland, Kvenland and Gotland. This sublime elemental force is acoustically transcribed on Fornjot, with its energetic, almost elegiac pieces, and the visualization of Arvidsson, standing high on cliffs, with solid rocks bursting and commanding the wind and seas as well.
