Review from Aristocrazia Webzine

È passato qualche anno dall’uscita di Nur Ein Moment…, il primo atto di un concept esistenzialista ideato dai tedeschi Frigoris, e in quest’arco di tempo la creatura di Dominik Winter non se n’è stata con le mani in mano. Dopo aver realizzato uno split coi conterranei Asator e aver preso parte alla mega-raccolta organizzata dalla propria etichetta, il quartetto di Essen ha portato a termine il viaggio iniziato nel 2016 ...

"Nach dem Krieg" (2010), "Wind" (2013) y "Nur ein Moment..." (2016) es la discografía previa de Frigoris. Seré honesto: no he escuchado nada cuando me pongo con su nuevo lanzamiento. Quedaría muy bien escribir lo contrario... hoy todo el mundo sabe la hostia de todo gracias a Internet, pero yo lo único que he ido entrelazando es que " Stille" es la continuación de su anterior trabajo y lo han dividido en tres partes.

For some reason - do not ask me how - or when, where, whatever - I did not review Nur Ein Moment…, the predecessor of …In Stille. A pity, for this band deserves some (any) additional support and promotion. The same, evidently, goes for the label involved, Hypnotic Dirge Records (although, for this magnificent Saskatoon, Canada based label, I did several other reviews before, for this label deserves any additional attention whatsoever...

‘In Stille’ is atmospheric beyond belief. The black metal soldiers of Frigoris have created a magnificent beast, entwining and deep, multi-layered atmospheres with beauty and grace a plenty.

Each track on the release is a complete journey in itself and each offers elegance and refinement in waves of polish and harmony. The penultimate track on the album, ‘Die Gleise An Denen Wir Starben I’ is an instrumental of beautiful proporti...

The role of artwork in putting across an album’s intentions can be taken for granted. It surely seems obvious that, as the most visible part of a record, the cover art should act as a kind of summary of what the musicians want to express; yet so often it feels as if the artwork was an after-thought. But in the case of …In Stille (“In Silence”) by Frigoris, the cover feels like a fine summation of the themes of the alb...

I’ve dug pretty deep through the tunnels of melodic black metal, and Frigoris serves to remind me that discovering more acts of high quality in this field prevents the process from getting tiresome. Stumbling upon a good one is among my favourite cathartic moments in experiencing music. The substance, the moods, and the careful balance between tranquil and monstrous is what this emotionally charged offshoot of bleak heaviness...

Frigoris aus Essen kenne ich noch aus meiner Zeit bei Black Horizonz, da wir damals mit ihnen ein paar Gigs gespielt hatten. Damals waren sie noch eine Pagan-/Black Metal-Band, heute geht es mehr in Richtung Post-Black Metal. Ich finde ja nach wie vor, dass „Post“ im Black Metal-Bereich immer noch eine Art Schimpfwort ist. Dennoch machen Frigoris ihre Sache richtig gut, denn sie haben immer noch viel Atmosphäre in ihrer Musik,...

Emotionally draining, emotionally harrowing and emotionally horrifying, Firgoris’ understand atmospheric black metal. They have clear grasp on how to be both ugly and beautiful and the same time. We have mellow passages of melody that eases the pain and suffering caused by the ugliness of the black metal. Scarring heaviness that pours from troubled souls, the chaotic rhythm is saved by the sadness cover...

Eén momentje, stil zijn. In dit eenvoudig zinnetje, weliswaar in het Duits te vertalen dan, zitten de twee laatste platen vervat van het ijskoude post-blackmetalgezelschap Frigoris. Via het Canadese Hypnotic Dirge records bereikt … In Stille mij. En om met de deur in huis te vallen, heerlijk plaatje! Je zou direct een heleboel lawaai willen maken, maar dat past niet echt. Vrolijkheid, uitbundigheid en blijdschap zijn niet direct de...

I tedeschi Frigoris ritornano con il loro quarto album “…In Stille” concludendo il concept cominciato nel 2016 con “Nur Ein Moment…”. La nuova fatica in studio uscirà il 24 gennaio per Hypnotic Dirge Records, e il risultato è di buona fattura. Autori di un post-black metal a volte descritto come atmospheric, a volte come melodic, in verità unisce tantissime diverse influenze che andremo ad analizzare in seguito. I Frigoris ...

Frigoris’ brand of black metal doesn’t really bite in the way you expect black metal to. On their fourth album, …In Stille, the german outfit continue to hone their sound so that it’s not one of jagged edges, but a fine, carefully worked blade. It’s well produced, trading in that traditional harsh, trebly coating for a warm, full low end and smooth guitar tones. It washes over you gently, it doesn’t bowl you over. That’s ...

This is the fourth album from Frigoris, an atmospheric post-black metal band from Germany.

Frigoris’ post-black metal is atmospheric and immersive, and as you journey across this 65-minute album, you’ll also discover aspects of doom, progressive metal, and post-rock that are incorporated into the music’s textured tapestry.

The well-crafted songs are dark and filled with a sense of melancholy and sorrow. These are long songs stee...

Konzeptalben, die sich über zwei Platten ziehen und dadurch Tiefgang erzeugen (wollen), sind in neuerer Zeit nicht allzu weit verbreitet. Frigoris haben sich nach ihrem Stilwechsel von Pagan auf Post-Black Metal im Jahre 2016 aber für genau diesen Weg entschieden und präsentieren uns mit „…in Stille“ den zweiten Teil einer äußerst melancholischen Reise durch den modernen Black Metal.

Jedoch schien das Konzept auch schon b...

And so, here we are with Frigoris, and their album In Stille. With so many extreme bands falling into the category of post this that and the other, sounding fairly generic with very few unique or distinctive aspects to their music the trouble is that artists of this ilk often sound as if very little thought has gone into the work other than to make epic tracks with a duration of anything from five to 25 minutes. So, with Frigoris...

FRIGORIS is a Post Black metal band rooted in the heart of the ruhr-area, Germany. From their Facebook page, “the combination between Black Metal riffing and craftsmanship as well as a postmodern approach towards atmosphere and lyrics form a synthesis that results in long, atmospheric but melodious songs. The isolation and depression in modern society, the beauty of nature and a last pure shimmer of hope left are all tropes you can f...
