"Nattarvet" (Black Lodge Records; 2019)

Reviewed by Snidermann


Holy crap! The first time I played through Wormwood's "Nattarvet" I found myself transported away to whereever the hell they wanted to send me. This shit is fun! It goes from heavy metal to soulful, almost melancholy grooves just like that but don't get me wrong: It's hard and heavy music.

Wormwood  plays on the emotions like a finely tuned instrument. The band has been around since 2014 and they have an impressive catalog of music. I don't know what they put in the water in that part of the world but Denmark, Sweden and Norway deliver some of the best heavy metal and hard rock bands in the world.

The name of this recording is "Nattarvet" which, according to Google, translates to "Night Legacy" in English. From what I have witnessed, this band knows how to deliver some killer metal music.

I love it when you listen to a recording you have no preconceived notion of where the music is going to take you. What I expreienced was something I was not ready for but that I greatly appriciated. I may not be able to understand all the words of this recording but really who can understand the words of any heavy music today? I don't really care as long as I am entertained and I am can tell you, Rough Edge readers, what I think, and I think this album rocks! Any fan of heavy metal music should really like this recording.

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.
