Horde Of Hel - Doden Nalkas


This is an intense one. Horde Of Hel have returned with a third LP, Doden Nalkas and it is a stunner. On this record the band take dramatic steps forward, unleashing preternatural war cries and going straight for the throat. This is twisted Swedish black metal fury at its finest. It seems like with this new album, their most intense offering to date, Horde Of Hel have found ways to access bold new achievements and remind us once again why they are a truly special and indomitable force in the world of heavy underground music. 

As the record kicks off with the wonderfully ferocious 'Blodets Morgon' you immediately know what you are in for. The blasting drums, the synth padding and the unrelenting guitars. Yet these songs are surprisingly well constructed. Though often the notion is just pure go for the throat misery, most of the time that bloodlust is what makes the music so delectable. One finds themselves wandering through twisted sonic passageways, relishing the demented new ideologies and sickening twists and turns. It makes for a compelling offering that is going to continue to pay off for Hordes Of Hel as they grow as a band. 

There is something utterly mesmerizing about this band. At a certain point the intensity no longer is intimidating but is instead a sort of celebration of black metal insanity. The tormented vocals and desperate pleading hunger of these songs comes together to make something addictive and powerful. The band has really leaned into some of their more animalistic elements and this means that the execution on Doden Nalkas is one of a kind, twisted, barbaric and punishingly raw. For those of us entranced with this madness, it makes for a rewarding listening.

    Am so happy to testify about a great spell caster that helped me when all hope was lost for me to unite with my ex-girlfriend that I love so much. I had a girlfriend that love me so much but something terrible happen to our relationship one afternoon when her friend that was always trying to get to me was trying to force me to make love to her just because she was been jealous of her friend that i was dating and on the scene my girlfriend just walk in and she thought we had something special doing together, i tried to explain things to her that her friend always do this whenever she is not with me and i always refuse her but i never told her because i did not want the both of them to be enemies to each other but she never believed me. She broke up with me and I tried times without numbers to make her believe me but she never believed me until one day i heard about the DR. EMU and I emailed him and he replied to me so kindly and helped me get back my lovely relationship that was already gone for two months.
