Himinbjorg - _Where Ravens Fly_
(Red Stream, 1998)
by: Alex Cantwell (
These French guys have it together. They have succeeded in putting together an album that I enjoy and will listen to on occasion; cool packaging and cool music. As Red Stream is great at finding talent and then packaging it properly, Himinbjorg serves as a testament to their cause. _Where Ravens Fly_ features well put together riffs and song structures, playing warring metal in the black metal vein. Although this CD is comprised of only six songs, it is indeed a full length. Celestial atmospheres are created by wise use of keyboards and make for great segueways between tracks. A good, solid effort from a band that was until now unknown to me always makes for a good surprise. So dress for battle, sharpen thy ax and sword, mount thy steed, go forth unto thy sofa and take a good listen to Himinbjorg.
