Naglfar - Pariah

Posted on Wednesday, April 11, 2012

I thought for sure when I’d heard that Jens Ryden, perceived by many to be the creative force behind this band, had jumped ship, that the sun had most likely set on these Swedish Black Metal vets. I love it when I’m wrong. With Pariah, Naglfar have crafted by far the finest Black Metal offering of 2005 up to this point. The venom drips from the speakers as the sinister hooks of Dissection mutate with the speed and fury of Marduk, both in their respective primes. As sharp and brutal as it is lyrically bold, yet done with enough finesse to lure in even the Borgir/Filth beginners, and the pipes of Kris Olivius, making the switch from bassist to lead vocals, don’t have me missing Jens as much. Do yourself a favor, put down the Plague Angel and pick up the Pariah.
