Saligia: FØNIX

Album Review

Insidious sermons from the Trondheim mountaintops

One of the more enigmatic projects connected with Norway’s Nidrosian black metal scene based in Trondheim, Saligia’s work is more of an autonomous entity than that of their comrades, who at times operate on an almost communal level, often resulting in a regionally trademarked sound.

Fønix attacks with short bursts of crudely thrashing riffs that twist and turn beneath the commanding vocal presence of mastermind Ahzari. He delivers a refreshingly articulate and fiery sermon of howls and croaky intonations, whose subject matter provokes deeper intrigue.
