With a complete disregard for human life, Nordwitch presents Mørk Profeti their newest offering that sports seven songs of utter blasphemy. The combination of black metal and death metal creates a listen that is detrimental to the listener as each song does its very best to relinquish you of your life. There isn’t a single minute or second of filler within this record, so what you get is seven songs straight that aim for your jugular. There are no intros or outros or interludes and before you know it your neck will be cranked in the complete wrong direction as this album gets you headbanging early and often.
When the first note hits your ears you know that you are in for a violent and wild ride. After the two minute opener Nordwitch kicks everything into overdrive and you end up getting subjected to a skull cracking beating whether you wanted it or not. The run times for each of the seven songs is pretty substantial as well, so if you think that you may get a rest in the form of shorter run times, you would be mistaken. Since these songs are a little longer you end up being put through the wringer for longer and when the album is over you end up looking like you got spat out of hell.
Each song is riddled with slashing riffs, heavy bass lines, machine gun like drumming and powerful vocals and with each of these elements sewn together so well you get a cacophony of deadly metal and a wall of death. Mørk Profeti is heavy, straight forward and ultimately punishing as one song after the next is rolled out with the intent to kill. All seven songs that are on this record are raw and powerful and demand your full attention as anything less would be unacceptable. And even after you take your beating when the album has concluded you press play again to begin the head caving and neck snapping process over again.
If you are looking for an album that has tight musicianship, great production and is just overall devastating, then Mørk Profeti is that album. This record provides you with plenty of sinister and twisting material to keep your head banging for days until you have some form of brain bruising. This release is built for death metal, black metal and extreme metal fans alike, and if you are a fan of any of those genres, then this album would be perfect for you.
