Moods massive, enchanting melodies and majesty, here is what is the new second album by German Frigoris. "Wind" was released for the Misanthropic Art Productions and consists of 7 songs plus intro for about 48 minutes and a half of a melodic black metal, not prone to attack front and mid tempos and more inclined to introspection. Nevertheless, the songs are not flat, they are not a bunch of homogeneity as a single-issue in many post black metal discs, but they manage admirably to evolve in the disk and to propose the remarkable climax that captivate the listener lover of these sounds melodic yet very wild, dark and majestic. 
To understand all this, just let go of the second song and immediately the powerful mid-tempo rock and stands on the majestic riffs that I have brought to mind the very first Dimmu Borgir (and rarely cite historical bands to describe the sound of these bands), but with guitars and harmonies to compensate for the lack of a keyboard. And if the third song suffers at the beginning of a plagiarism to "A fine day to die" Bathory, perr luck shooting with a shot of the epic song really enviable. Other times, it happens, as in the fourth and seventh song, there is a female voice to accompany the screams of the singer, helping to emphasize the atmospheric component of the disc, already very marked, with just the seventh song to make an episode particular album, where the band performs an instrumental masterpiece compact and consistent with a remarkable climax, while the voices are only occasional and whispered or spoken. All the while "Und asche" shows the rabid side of the disc. short: not bad at all. A great discovery for me and a disc whose purchase is highly recommended if you, like me, like these atmospheres solemn and powerful, even at the expense of dynamism and heterogeneity of the final product. Buy this CD sight unseen if you are fond of such records by Enslaved "Eld" and "Vikingligr Veldi." Do not miss this precious jewel Germanic in your CD collection.

The German foursome of Frigoris came into motion back in '07, under the leadership of guitarist/vocalist Dominik Winter, although internal affairs in '09 forced the rest of the band out and Dominik began anew. At that point two demos had already been released, which was followed by the debut 'Nach dem Krieg' in '10 and most recently their second album 'Wind' through Misanthropic Art/Hypnotic Dirge Records.

German band Frigoris release their sophomore album on Hypnotic Dirge and the list of ‘for fans of’ appealed so here I am, eager. It opens as you might expect with a little soundscape, wind softly calling across the landscape, rustling trees and grass as the acoustic guitar plucks a pastoral tune before being swallowed by the rush of the blasting riff and the nicely howled vocals. It’s a good sound, and a nice if plainly p...

One of the great things about metal is discovering new bands, not just those placed in front of you by the bigger labels but those lesser known artists who deserve to be heard. Likewise, it is also important to support the smaller, independent labels who toil away in relative obscurity yet show a clear passion for the music.

My point? Thanks to Hypnotic Dirge, a label who always impresses with their shrewd choices as to who to...

Album Reviews make twice as much fun when you know what to expect. So I was on Ragnarock 2013 Frigoris already experience and goutieren some songs in the current plate and second plate "wind" live. Frigoris are at least visually not the typical Black Metal.

Without corpsepaint cliche but with the more "melodic" the guys in the division cut-Depressive Black Metal Melodic and remind me of the pl...

Frigoris is a pagan/black metal from Germany, with German lyrics, sometimes reminding me of Dornenreich. The music and production is executed in a very good manner and there are not many things to complain about there. However the songwriting is the largest drawback with this album.

For me it is almost impossible to stay focused during the entire album. I’ve tried and tried, I’ve listened so many times now, just to reall...

Almost every time I stop by a German Metal band I never get disappointed and FRIGORIS is no exception, add to it that the integrality of the lyrics in this Pagan gloomy album are in German, a thing that accentuates the common fact that this language is most fit for Rock and Metal. Indeed, from the first glimpse into the artwork (where a wide field of cereals is yielding) can tell it all, alongside the album intro where wind sound...

The album starts with a very nice acoustic intro that slowly builds a very nice
atmosphere. After hearing it, I was really looking forward to what the rest of the
album will sound like. Sadly the second song "Zwischenwelten" didn't really give me
anything, there is a nice acoustic part in the song but overall it's nothing really

But now, looking back when I first heard this album the song title "Zwischenwelten" can

Dominik Winter rules the roast in Frigoris. In 2007 he founded this atmospheric black metal project and since then many band members have come and go. Wind happens to be the second full length album and the successor of Nach Dem Krieg (2010). Recorded at famous Gernhart Studios with producer Martin Buchwalter, the four-piece active on this album has created a melancholic record with a grand atmosphere. However it shows the...

Frigoris is a German pagan black metal band formed back in 2007 by Dominik Winter. After the demo “Morgenröte” in 2008 and several line-up changes, the band self-released its debut full-length album “Nach dem Krieg…” in 2010. The line-up changes never stopped for the band, but they didn’t give up. In the end of 2012 they signed a one-record deal with the Canadian label Hypnotic Dirge Records and the South Korean ...
