Oakhelm- Echtra (2011)

Echtra (2011)
Genre: Black Metal/Folk

Portland Oregon's Oakhelm returns in a big way in the footsteps of their amazing 2007 debut 'Betwixt and Between'. This 5 song full length has everything I've been looking for in a recent black metal release, great production, layers of musicianship and beautiful melody, moments of cold harsh blasts and a deep consistent atmosphere. A great album to get lost in, although this effort probably wont beat out the new 'Arckanum' and 'Wolves In The Throne Room' for best black metal album of the year, this release comes very highly recommended from me to you.
