Doom/Death Metal meshed with Post Metal seems to only be expanding in Canada. Norilsk have crafted an interesting work with towering grooves, epic melodies and sludgy atmospheres. Excited for the next album.

I caught wind of this band back in February when Islander covered Hypnotic Dirge Records’ Subarctic Nocturnes compilation, which featured Norilsk’s track “Planète Heurt.” As much as I liked that track, I dug “Japetus” even more. Especially the cerebral music video the band made for that song.
