Trolldom – 'Av Gudars Ätt...' LP
140g Black vinyl edition in gatefold sleeve limited to 700 copies
TROLLDOM is a name that goes back many years. While the band's date of origin is unknown, it has lain dormant... until now, with the simultaneous release of TWO albums! Of them, 'Av Gudars Ätt' highlights both dynamics and desolation within his second-wave sensibilities. The album's music was written between 2014 and 2017 and recorded in 2018, while the mixing/mastering came in 2021. While TROLLDOM's spectral 'n' stargazing style of black metal mysticism remains firm between the two full-lengths, the five (mostly) epic tracks comprising Av Gudars Ätt unfurl a vast landscape of sonic/psychic color, going from sparse and almost-comforting tundras of ambience to majestic, stained-glass spirals of malevolence and plenty more in between; nearly every moment sounds monolithic and regal, no matter the tempo. Taken another way, Av Gudars Ätt's cover art perfectly illustrates its contents just as its counterpart's does.
