I've never been disappointed by Naglfar
since I first heard them sometime around 1996. They were extremely young and had
released Vittra the year before. I recall from the interviews that the
band members weren't talkative but had strong ideas. Lately, I hadn't heard of
them before I got hold on Téras. They had slowly but surely become a
faint memory of the good old days of Scandinavian black metal.
The band has right enough taken a creative break of some five years. It is good
to hear your inner voice and not force the production of art. What has come of
this period of reflection is Téras, a record that transports me right
away 15 years back in time. Still raging, still ice cold and fiery at the same
time, with accumulated awe, mastery of the genre, of their own style, sound,
ways of composing and arranging, in a modernised version of their art.
Now I'm ready for a live show if Naglfar pleases. Or I might just dream
about the winter with Téras on the playing list.
Don't think I will have gotten bored of it by
