Holy fiddlesticks is this dark and ugly. There's this cursory grinding effect that whittles away your soul. I really enjoy these nameless entities that randomly pop up and release jewels like this.
Favorite track: Chthonian Initiation.
A unique, nearly-nameless entity from Sweden, FŌR create sepulchral black/death metal from uniquely-located, surely-nameless depths. Their Kundaz debut album appeared seemingly out of nowhere in early 2013, and now arrives the Blakaz Askǭ Hertô 12" MLP via IRON BONEHEAD PRODUCTIONS. Devoted to the Germanic black witch Gullveig and her Thursian bloodline of ravenous hordes of wolves and werewolves, the concept of FŌR 's music is based upon the sacred bindrune, Ulfhamir, and pursues to invoke the black wolf-spirit within. FŌR accomplish this with ceaselessly churning, mercilessly morbid, nearly amorphous BLACK/DEATH that's dusted with the ruins of industry/industrial. From there, across Blakaz Askǭ Hertô FŌR awaken the savage beast and invoke the dark, vile blood from her veins: the eitr of Niflheim itself, the wrath of monstrosities that dwell within the night, behind the trees in the shadow. An invocation of pure lycanthropic wisdom, obey the bloody, pitch-black call of FŌR's Blakaz Askǭ Hertô...

This young man is a real up and coming force in black metal. His stuff reminds me of The Ruins of Beverast; this is just about as high of a complement as I can give a project, as I consider Ruins to have almost perfected what black metal should sound like. Grandiose and gross (love that vomiting sample); Cthulhu's black metal band. Matthew Arnold

You're going to need an oxygen mask to make it through this record. Absolutely suffocating!! Recommend headphones to pick up all the nuance. There's a lot going on in there. Good stuff.
