Vingulmork are a band from Norway that has been featured before in this zine and plays a blackened form of thrash metal and this is a review of their 2019 ep "Avgrunn" which will be released in June by Crime Records.
Dark soundscapes and acoustic guitars start off the ep before going into a heavier musical direction which also introduces black emtal screams onto the recording. The solos and leads also use a great amount of melody while the faster sections of the music also utilize tremolo picking and blast beats.
Death metal growls are also added into some parts of the music along with the riffs also utilizing a good amount of melody. Throughout the recording you can also hear a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts while all of the musical instruments have a very powerful sound to them.
The riffs also mix in a great amount of thrash elements as well as the music also getting very brutal sounding at times along with the music also adding in a good mixture of both modern and old school influences. The production sounds very professional while the lyrics are written in a mixture of Norwegian and English and cover dark themes.
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from Vingulmork and if you are a fan of blackened thrash metal, you should check out this ep. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Eternally Swallow, Eternally Keep" and "Doderlein". 8 out of 10.
