Second full-length album by Norwegian Black Metal band.
“Torturmantra” plays in such a mixed fashion throughout: shifting tempos, cold and piercing Black Metal riffs smashed up against some Thrash'n'Death walls of guitars, tipples of melody and even the odd section of Groove as heard in “Klastrert Pе Ambolt”. Like any good band in the darkest of genres though, Gravdal maintain the desolate tone required and loved by those who immerse themselves in Black Metal.
Produced by Enslaved’s Herbrand Larsen, and recorded by Larsen, Bjørnar E. Nilsen (Vulture Industries, Black Hole Generator) and Arve Isdal (Enslaved, Audrey Horne) at their Conclave and Earshot Studios in Bergen, “Torturmantra” includes a guest appearance by Shining’s Niklas Kvarforth! Also original line-up features guitarist of Aeternus!!
Artwork made by Robert Hoyem (Iskald, Den Saakaldte, Evoken, Slagmaur, Sworn, Elite etc...).
While not veering into the Progressive end of the scale like some fellow Norwegians, Gravdal knead in enough complexity to challenge while not turning off. Time to go back and find their debut album!!!
