Helheim - _Av Norron Aett_
(Solstitium Records, 1997)
by: Adam Wasylyk (7 out of 10)
Not to be confused with the band on Necropolis with the same name, Helheim construct their black metal into long, epic songs which demonstrate that this band can write lengthy songs and keep the ideas flowing. Male and female vocals are utilized along with some acoustic guitar passages, while keyboards are not used to create atmosphere but rather the band rely on their guitars to do the job. Bands that come to mind while hearing _Av Norron Aett_ include a more melodic/slower Immortal and perhaps Enslaved. Clocking in at just under an hour, Helheim are a talented band who know how to write long songs and make them sound good. Hat's off to them.
