[Music] Stvannyr – Valley Of Shadows

Stvannyr consist of 2/3 of the post-rock/atmospheric metal group Realm of Wolves, but this project might actually be heavier.  We’ve come to expect some fine instrumental tracks from István and his crew, and this album is no exception.  The guitar playing is clean, sharp, excellent in terms of metal music (which is not my cup of tea normally, making this album that much more exceptional).  It’s crisply recorded, and loud enough

Post-rock music keeps branching out into fresh territory, which makes musicians practicing this dark art a pleasure to enjoy.
