Hulder emerges from the darkest depths to deliver the debut full length “Godslastering Hymns Of A Forlorn Peasantry” channeling a primal blackened force and esoteric vibes.
The frostbitten guitar riffs of “Upon Frigid Winds” evoke a perennial darkness following a ravenous fast rhythm that will eventually embrace a mystical atmospheric momentum featuring ethereal synths and grim melodies.
Throughout “Creature Of Demonic Majesty” the raw energy of the guitar work can lead to robust black’n’roll dynamics while the synths add arcane accents and the growls maintain a malignant delivery.
On “Sown In Barren Soil” the gelid guitar tonalities and the hostile rhythmic blasts can sound quite ferocious yet at times the tempo slows down to highlight the comforting feelings of the soft harmonies.
“A Forlorn Peasant’s Hymn” begins with mellow arpeggios embellished by celestial vocals that belong to a distant dreamy world yet a vicious blackened essence will take over as the rhythmic section acquires speed fueled by the blistering riffage.
“From Whence An Ancient Evil Once” continues to rely on primordial blackened influences with tremolo picking and obscure tonalities even if often the whole instrumentation sounds less aggressive and there is space for calmer melodic passages.
On “Godslastering Hymns Of A Forlorn Peasantry” Hulder successfully creates a mysterious sonic realm that ranges from enigmatic atmospheric waves to old school black metal.
