‘High Heat Licks Against Heaven’, an album drenched in Norse mythology, and names from the younger and older Edda appears throughout in the lyrics. The album drifts in the middle of black and death metal, but with the Norse theme, it creates a unique and fresh breath of sound. To put it mildly, this is a brutal and honest metal record.
