Helfro – Helfro
Bubbling in the cauldron of the Icelandic black metal scene, HELFRÓ emerges with a fury and competence rarely seen. The band’s self-titled debut album channels the hopeless and empty feelings of those wandering through frozen wastelands. Shrilling guitarwork and unforgiving blast beats weave together a soundscape that rarely leaves room for thought. It is an aural attack, seducing the listener to the barren and desolate black sands where the realization of futility and loneliness sets in heavier than anywhere else.
