Guest review by

I first heard this album in a desperate attempt to broaden my horizons. While I did this, I found completely unknown bands from the vast North; and interestingly, Potentiam are a band who comes from Iceland and their album Bálsýn has a very chilling, cool sound. What better way to produce this type of music from a place where the phrase 'cold' is derived?
