Mörker - _Höstmakter_
(Northern Silence, 2008)
by: Nikola Shahpazov (7 out of 10)
_Höstmakter_ is a throwback to the time of the National Romantic wave of Nordic metal that replaced the simple punkish violence and feral Darkthrone riffs with melodic leads and synths while retaining a relatively raw approach and a certain grim atmosphere that justified the black metal tag. On their third release, Swedes Mörker stick relatively closely to the sound they coined with _Den Sista Utfärden_ and _Skuggornas Rike_: good guitar work, speedier black passages and a thin layer of piano and acoustic guitars. All in all it's a rather standard affair that offers nothing new but presents some very refined, extremely well executed tracks that provide for a nice listen. Some of the material is way above average -- check out the hectic, semi-folkloric rush on "Djupa Spår Av Tvivel" or the somewhat intense pace of "Själen Vandrar Sin Egen Väg".
