"The Trollish Mirror" (Blackend/Metal Blade)

Reviewed by Keith Guillotine

Amsvartner are a death/black/heavy metal band out of Europe. This CD has only four tracks on it and lasts a mere twenty-three minutes, but the entire album kicks butt. The lyrics are definitely evil in nature - I liked it! 

The band was originally formed in November 1994 by twins Alfred and Albin Johansson, and was originally named Awakening. They later added three more members, including older brother Marcus. The speed riffs and European Goth sound is a "must hear" if you're into dark/evil music. Catholic school girls - save your money.

Amsvartner are: Drums - Alfred Johansson; Bass - Albin Johansson; Vocals - Marcus Johansson; Guitar - Jonathan Holmgren; Guitar - Daniel Nygaard

Rating Guide:

A classic. This record will kick your ass.

Killer. Not a classic but it will rock your world.

So-so. You've heard better.

Pretty bad. Might make a nice coaster.

Self explanatory. Just the sight of the cover makes you wanna hurl.
