Blot & Bod - Ormekongens Argelist' LP
140g black vinyl edition limited to' 200 copies
BLOT & BOD intensify their iron-fisted iteration with the swift 'n' decisive 2019 LP, Ormekongens Argelist. As every other release from the aforementioned Copenhagen scene, Ormekongens Argelist was recorded in a studio at the legendary venue Mayhem, ensuring clear-yet-cutting production that heightens BLOT & BOD's bloodthirsty attack. From their mutual cultural heritage and through their respective native tongues, the power-trio have fully established a framework of Norse mythology, where they throw you deeper into head-first into their idiosyncratic battlefield. Just like on Ligæder, here the swords of both mind and body cross blades till they are worn down to grains and are ready to be forged back into shape. BLOT & BOD have crafted a singular sound that's reverent of black metal traditionalism but by no means is bound to it unnecessarily. Simply, their spiritual spectrum is more focused than ever, a joyously violent bounty of minimal-is-maximal songwriting executed (literally) with the fury and finesse of craftsmen quickly becoming cognizant of their boundless powers. And, just like that, within 30 minutes is Ormekongens Argelist concluded, and BLOT & BOD emerge transcendent. Burn brightly, burn quickly, but never fade away...
