Arcturus - Aspera Hiems Symfonia

Posted on Thursday, September 02, 2010

What happens when you take Ulver’s singer (Garm), the drummer from the legendary Mayhem (Hellhammer), and team them up with a somewhat lesser known guitarist, and bassist? I wouldn’t have guessed that they would make a melodic, atmospheric, keyboard-laden “Symphonic” Metal album. This sounds like they should be signed to Holy Records, if you know what I mean. I’m thoroughly impressed by the excellent writing and the flawlessly technical playing. I wonder how many people will call Arcturus the first Black Metal “supergroup.”
