IFRINN (eng) "Ifrinn" 12"MLP
Ifrinn take the listener on a half-hour trip through a dank subterranean realm, fraught with dread and trepidation. The best description I can muster for the dominant style found here would be hypnotic blackened death metal. The release evokes thoughts vast and spacious yet without the associated lo-fi cavernous production. Ifrinn conjure this sense of endless space through the immensity of the riffing. The aforementioned hypnotic element arises due to their structure. The actual riffs tend to spread out and fill the enormous spaces, crossing multiple bars and have repeating motifs that either alternate back and forth or shift, as if the ground was quaking below your feet.
