Thorr’s Hammer – Dommedagsnatt (1996)

Haunting, beautiful and heavy doom metal from this proto-Sunn group. The vocal performances from Runhild Gammelsæter are stunning, a foil to the boggy doom of the band themselves. There is a dense Norse kinda feel here (hey, maybe its just the runes on the cover, eh).

The only real downside is that there are only two studio recordings here, the rest of the record is made up of live or rehearsal recordings. The drop in quality isn’t so bad after an adjustment, but its still a bit of a dissapointment, considering how short this EP is.
