Review Type: 

Ereb Altor is the brainchild of Ragnar and Mats, the doom masters behind Isole. On this collaboration, this Swedish duo takes Viking metal to a new place. If you can call it that way. for the band knows how to perfectly place folk/Viking elements and haunting vocals over a doom metal foundation

I have to say that this record is brilliant. I’m not a fan of doom metal and certainly not a fan of folk/Viking metal. But these chaps have made a genius combination of those genres. They make it sound like an epic theatrical journey.  You can almost imagine yourself on a boat going towards a storm. This is a must hear. Like I said, this isn’t something I would normally listen to, but then again I would miss out on a beautiful gem.
