I would love so much to give this album the highest mark, but I simply can’t... This is a very beautiful release, but we are talking about Black Metal after all, so is the word “beautiful” the right one which you would like to find in such a review? Of course, sometimes it might fit, but generally, when I’m going to listen to BM, I expect some other words to be used while describing an album... Of course, Fr...

Fully aware of Hypnotic Dirge Records' reputation, the label amongst other cooperate closely with Solitude Productions, I said yes to review this without knowing what I was in for.
When it appeared that Frigoris didn't fit into the safe, good death/doom profile, but rather colours the world dark grey with sombre blue shades in the form of monotonous post-metal, I was about to resign.
Let me nonetheless present Nur ein Moment… für S...

Review from Dead Rheteric

Seeing things move against the current grain is always satisfying. In our worldwide culture of instant gratification and song-driven (as opposed to album-driven) appeal, we can count on metal bands to buck the tide. Germany’s blackened doomsters Frigoris give us their third album, Nur ein Moment (Just a Moment), and its only part one of a two-album concept (how’s that for making one wait…) – one that deals with the consequenc...

The dramatic sonic collision between black metal and prog is something to behold on Frigoris’ Nur ein Moment …, an album rife with emotion. And rightfully so, given that it is the first of a two-part concept album that delves into the thoughts of a pained soul on the verge of committing suicide.

For those not versed in the German language, the storyline is one built solely around the music, given the vocals are spewed in the band...

On August 25, Hypnotic Dirge will release the new album by the German band Frigoris, whose name you may recall from the praise we heaped on an advance track from the album named “Trúwen”. Entitled Nur ein Moment… (Just one Moment…), it follows the band’s 2013 debut full-length Wind and is the first part of a two-album concept that follows “the tracks of a protagonist who faces the consequences of suicide in an interior ...

Few acts these days see the dizzying heights of success, but more and more are deserving of such recognition. The internet has become a double edged sword for those “stuck” in the underground scenes and while Frigoris may not have a mainstream popularity, the group’s third full-length capitalizes on a sheer musical focus to get them through.

Often described as post black metal it’s no wonder that a band like Frigoris can make ...

Frigoris  are  a  band  from  Germany  that  plays  an  atmospheric  form  of  post  black  metal  and  this  is  a  review of their  2016  album  "Nur Ein Moment"  which  will  be  released  in  August  by  Hypnotic  Dirge  Records.

Nature  sounds  and  clean  guitars  start  off  the  album  and  also  bring  in  touches  of  post  rock  and  after  a minute melodic  guitar  leads  start  becoming  a  very  huge  part  of  the...
