"Today with so much saturation in music, great works very easily go completely unnoticed, which is exactly what would have happened in this case, had not Damnatio Ad Beasts entered the scene.
Truthfully what we have here is not a complete album, but two works that the band has made during its run, the first four songs come from the 2016 demo "Konungsblot", recorded between June and July of 2016.
Allthough the songs that make up the album are very similar in structure, we see a slight improvement in these first four songs, but do not worry because the difference is minimal.
The remaining four themes came from 2015 and the first demo that the band performed in October 2015, this recording was titled "Vintergryning".
In total there are 8 songs that are collected in this first full work of Fruset Rike, a work that does not deserve to be forgotten. I predict a good future for Fruset Rike, as they perfectly capture the spirit of early works from bands like Satyricon, Carpathian Forest, Immortal or Darkthrone, even Dark Funeral or Marduk in their first time, since the guitars bear the Swedish stamp.
Undoubtedly a great discovery, cover design and other content has been done by the same label, Ninnagesh has done a great job with the overall design of the CD.
You know, if you like Black Metal in its primitive, crude and melodic form at the same time, this work will suit you wonderfully.
