Swedish Melodic Black Metal. Third album.
Featuring an all-new lineup with Anders again leading the way, VANANIDR's "Damnation" suitably splits the difference between its two full-length predecessors - the solemn dynamics of "Vananidr" crossed with the more aggressive aspect of "Road North", if you will. And immediately, "Damnation" bursts forth with that now-signature VANANIDR sound: an undulating snowstorm of white-hot melodicism, the spiraling violence spilling forth even-more-epic visions. And now, those visions retain the band's elder '90s classicism whilst imparting a sleeker, more modern atmosphere - gritty, urban, but wolfish and ever alone.
Jewelcase CD with 12 pages booklet.
