blown in from the arctic gales of the northern lands, 1184 is a truly revelatory album. Exceptional in every way- musicianship, songwriting, riffing, concept- 1184 deserves it’s rightful place upon the mantle of truly, rediculously awesome metal masterpieces of all time.
The wintry, melodic riffs really stick with you. Windir has made one hell of an album here- 1184 is brilliant, haunting, almost hypnotic folk/blackmetal. Don’t miss this.
