Himinbjorg - _Golden Age_
(Adipocere, 2003)
by: Pedro Azevedo (7.5 out of 10)
With a new guitarist and a new drummer, Himinbjorg have replaced half the band after _Haunted Shores_; whether that is one of the main reasons for the renewed venom found in _Golden Age_ I cannot tell. The fact remains that this new album sees a strong Himinbjorg return to the fray with an album that can conjure up a whirlwind during its faster sections just as easily as it can slow down into a rather more majestic pace. With the changes in pace and occasional clean singing, Himinbjorg follow the footsteps of early Borknagar -- there is a feeling of something nordic to the music of these Frenchmen, and _Golden Age_ shows character as well as vigour and skill. Dynamic and engaging, this new Himinbjorg effort should prove well worth your time.
