Hulder – Godslastering: Hymns of a Forlorn Peasantry
On earlier releases Hulder introduced her musical vision in primal form but with a direct sense of grimly melodic intent. Yet it was on debut album ‘Godslastering: Hymns of a Forlorn Peasantry’ that Hulder’s distinct penchant for crafting harsh anthems of mystical, invigorating grandeur and abyssic depth began to fully congeal.
Throughout the album Hulder weaves the threads of various Black Metal strands together taking elements of pagan folk, ethereal symphonic majesty and the scraping raw melodicism of the most discordant and ghastly kind. ‘Godslastering…’ paints a vivid picture of lurking medieval darkness and long forgotten lineages plagued by disease and poverty, constantly under threat of armored plunderers with ill intent.
