Zhrine: Unortheta

Album Review

Iceland’s extremists put their stamp on black metal

Perhaps it’s something in the sulphur-laced water, but Icelandic metal bands have gained a reputation for both longevity and spectacular sonic evolution – think Sólstafir and Momentum.

Continuing that trend comes Reykjavik’s Zhrine, the band formally known as death metal troupe Gone Postal. Thankfully, those of you snorting mead out of your nose will be pleased to hear, the transformation unleashed across Unortheta is just as pronounced as their change of moniker.
