Unleashed Hymns is the second album from the Norwegian artist Fjøsnisse. The one-man project was launched last year by vocalist and multi-instrumentalist Anders Vada.
This album it’s released on vinyl for the first time. They are a good example of very well executed Norwegian black metal with thrash metal elements.
Great vocals, thrash metal style abrasive riffs and relentless drumming there is actually a fair bit of ambiance and melody on here.
The track The Nine Lords for instance, con- tains a melodic guitar section towards the latter half of the.
All the tracks have a very balanced amount of both melodic and harsh elements with smooth transitions in the guitar passages.
Then there is the beautifully serie and frostbitten instrumental The Wanderer, the closing song to what has been a very enjoyable album.
Unleashed Hymns is a cult-classic album, in particularly for those who enjoyed the bands that emerged as part of the Norwegian black metal scene in the 1990s.
A few de- cades later Fjøsnisse is continuing with the legacy. This album comes out in deluxe gatefold edition, in three colors (Gold / Red / Silver) 300 limited edition each.
