Kroda: Schwarzpfad (4.5/5)

Joshua's Top 10 Albums from 2011
#10 of 10

Year: 2011
Genre: Atmospheric Black Metal
Label: Purity Through Fire
TRT: 50:40

There's something very primal about Kroda. Hailing from The Ukraine, they incorporate a lot of the rich folk history of their country into their works, both through the instruments used and the lore reiterated. There's an undeniable beauty to their work, in both the cacophony and the quiet. This is a very memorable release with plenty of replay value.

01 Schwarzpfad I (First Snow)
02 Schwarzpfad II (Universal Provenances)
03 Schwarzpfad III (Forefather of Hangmen)
04 Schwarzpfad IV (Heil Ragnarok!)
05 Schwarzpfad V (Cold Aurora)
