3 stars Promising debut from this Norwegian band.

This album falls well within the label "nordic depressions". The tempo is sludgy and the music is both folky and symphonic.... with a slight doom metal edge. References are Sinkadus, Anekdoten, The Smiths and The Third And The Mortal. A hint of Motorpsycho can also be added here. The sound is pretty much sludgy doom metal like. But most of all; Nordagust sounds exactly like the Norwegian band they are.

The quality of their material is a bit variable. From the half decent to great. The title track is typical where it winds itself through the forest with an occasional thud and collision with the trees. The best song here is Mysterious Ways with it's multiple themes and long detours into folk rock, symphonic prog and metal.

The vocals are not perfect, but the instrumentation is pretty much what to expect from a nordic depression band. This album has some excellent guitar solos. There is no doubts that this band has something great going for them and they should really hone their skills in the next year. Nordagust may be the next big thing from Norway. This is indeed a very good debut album which has a couple of minor flaws. It is recommended to those who can take nordic depressions.

3.5 stars
