HMT Interviews: Auðn

Icelandic atmospheric black metal band Auðn left me rather impressed with this year’s sophomore full length, Farvegir fyrndar. We managed to catch the band’s guitarist/lyricist Aðalsteinn Magnússon, to learn more about the thought process behind the band and its music, as well as the landscape in Iceland.

Ne Obliviscaris – Urn

Ne Obliviscaris (NeO) burst into the extreme metal forefront with their 2012 debut Portal of I, with their unique blend of violins and extreme metal. 5 years on the band drops their third album, Urn. Would this prove to be a revolutionary turn in their musical journey? What we know though, is that Urn is definitely gonna be a kickass release for fans of progressive, extreme metal.
