Ymir – Ymir

Never before have the band sounded so invigorated, so robust and roiling in their sweepingly sumptuous ruminations; the aim may be for mystical black metal of a most mid-’90s vintage, but the palpable physicality present here puts Ymir in rarefied company, whether it’s past or especially present. Suitably, YMIR create epic screeds which open portals of the imagination and ancient consciousness alike, reverent to the old ways of noble black metal faith but by no means tethered to reductive expression: simply put, YMIR are a black metal band and Ymir is a black metal record, but their collective scope is boundless, brave, and breathing deeply of an essence few are able to grasp in the nowadays scene. Whether this self-titled album sees YMIR return to the shadows for an indeterminate / interminable amount of time remains to be seen, but its arrival is more-than-just cause for celebration. Hark, and hear this “Resurrection of the Pagan Fire”!
