Another Epic Outing by the Flight of Sleipnir

The Flight of Sleipnir have graced my favourite artist list for some time now. The haunting melodies and epic tales have always touched upon me in a way that not many others could. I can honestly say that I have been a fan of everything they have put out and in a little more than a months time, a new work of art will be resonating within my four walls.

Following on the heels of the 2014 album 'V', the 6th full length 'Skadi' shows the Colorado individualists The Flight of Sleipnir more focused and settled. Taking inspiration from earlier recordings which work as the creative drive, they forge their trademark sounds ahead once again in Nordic spiked splendour wrapped in a new life-form. 'Skadi' creates another extraordinary venture, full of extreme metal and polarizing tension. There is a certain fresh simplicity in structure, though the further you delve in, the more complex and soaring it becomes. From pulsing waves of doom & stoner, decorative rock and prog to expanding glances into folk spiked with black metal-esque sparks. Whether you consume it at an intimate campfire or throughout stormy evenings, with ‘Skadi’ they have created one of their most passionate and artistic recordings to date.

So far the band has only released one track, 'Awaken'. A 10 minute atmospheric journey which can be heard below.
