"Arv", the long overdue new release from the charismatic Norwegian formation has finally arrived.
And the wait has paid off, as ASMEGIN have successfully captured the unique character and beauty of their homeland.
"Arv" offers an extraordinary mix of sweeping metal riffs and melancholic folk melodies. Fragile violin arrangements collide with raw metal, thundering double bass with hammond organ parts, and powerful clean vocals with brutal grunts that are time and again haunted by a finishing touch of bewitching female vocals. To ensure that each detail of this multi-faceted work comes into its own, the band turned to Lasse Lammert (Alestorm...), whose mastering expertise allows each track to roar out of the speakers. "Arv" offers an authentic piece of Norway that fans of Nordic music should definitely not ignore.
