Nifelheim

“Servants of Darkness” (9 tracks. 34:36).

The first thing I have to say is that the spirit of Euronymous lives on in this cold, grim dungeon music. This sounds like it could have been the next album after “De Mysteriis Dom Sathanas” by Mayhem except that Tyrant is probably more adept at guitar than Euronymous was. Therefore, Nifelheim fits in the category of Black Metal that doesn’t progress or change. They focus on fast guitar riffing, single note playing, dungeon vocals, and evil imagery. In a word, primitive. Fans of Judas Iscariot, Immortal, and all primal, non-progressive Black Metal bands will find “Servants of Darkness” to be a very satisfying album.
