Back to Sweden again (Are you noticing a trend here? Almost like Sweden puts out killer music) for the black metal debut of Mörk Gryning. This album is a pretty straight forward mix of incredibly intense, blistering speed with catchy melodic riffing. Add to that a beautiful and icy atmosphere and you have a stellar black metal album that sort of gets lost in the wave of other incredible Swedish metal bands of the time. The music is incredibly written and one would think was written by seasoned vets but the members of Mörk Gryning were 15 and 18 when they recorded this album. Think about that. What were you doing at 15? I doubt anything this amazing. The album burns by at 35 minutes and each minute is packed with something amazing to hear. Under-appreciated classic? Very much so.
