Decibel comments on today’s album stream premiere
“The best way I can sum up Stortregn is “heroic blackened death metal.” Since the mid-2000s, the band has honed its devotion for Dissection, Naglfar, Sacramentum and Unanimated into a finely crafted weapon of riffs, growls and blasts. But they’ve also added a level of production values and hooks that takes their sound beyond other blue-album-cover acolytes. All of the ferocity is still there, but Stortregn delivers it with rich guitar melodies and epic solos that almost recall the harsher end of power metal. It’s a swirling storm of dark, majestic fun.”
Active since 2006, the Geneva-Switzerland-based act has released four albums and an EP to date which has garnered worldwide praise from music writers and extreme metal fans alike. Their most recent prior album, 2018’s Emptiness Fills the Void, boosted the band’s status and fanbase to new levels. Now the time has come for the group to take their next leap forward, a sentiment Impermanence embodies and embraces with unorthodox yet graceful conviction from start to finish.
Impermanence draws inspiration from a large array of influences including progressive tech-death to 90’s Swedish black metal, old-school heavy metal, and jazz in order to craft a unique style of death metal intertwined with a variety of black metal influences.
Stortregn – Impermanence is highly recommended for fans of bands such as Obscura, Opeth, Inferi, Dissection.
