The original post

Posted by Damnated on 22.05.2006 at 23:04
Since funeral doom is such a trand nowadays, I figured, let's make a thread about Nortt. many ppl don't even consider his music as funeral doom, and I agree, that he uses BM elements as well, and although the music has a slithly faster tempo then traditional funeral doom, I still consider Nortt to belong to this genre. What can I say about his works? Nortt is a one man band, a very depressive one actually, and he has a very strong focus on death in his creations. As he states, he talkes about death as a metafore, not simply the end of life, and for him his death would hold something erotic to.

I would like to discuss his music, and also, his 'ideology'

What do you think about the new album by Nortt (called Galgenfrist).

It's more likely dark ambient rather than doom or black (or their mix). Sure, it's not that bad but after previous albums i didn't expect such stuff.

for me it is still one of the biggest disappointments this year. It is way too ambient, has nothing to do with metal whatsoever.

As I wrote in a review, Nortt has been listening to way too much Until Death Overtakes Me and too little Burzum. This album repeated every mistake that Ligfaerd did, though at least it also maintained that album's strengths. Doesn't compare to old Nortt in any case.

Nonetheless, I was one of the 100 to get the ultra-limited edition.

I have a question...
Can you really recommed that album to someone?
I mean... Do you think that the album is good enough to recommend it?

I listened some songs of Ligfaerd in Nortt's myspace... And I liked it.
But my tastes are very strange... ^^U

Anyway.. I agree with you... Nortt must be a bit faster [just a bit]... then, the music will be perfect.

It's not about speed, but rather non-metalness. Lack of those wonderful overdistorted guitars. Lack of occasion piano notes. This ambient style isn't the best choice for Nortt.

But for the average listener I would still recommend this album. Although after I've recommended "Gudsforladt" or "Nattetale" or "Graven" or "Hedengangen".

Nortt had always been far from being a brilliant "band", but for me Galgenfrist was rather impressing. Yesterday I played this shit very loud, with good speakers and in a dark room and it was a sinister, dreadful sensation. Nortt are doing good becoming more ambient, because their metalness had never been that amazing.

Jejejje yeah.. I think I can agree on that
For me... both styles are very good [but not so brilliant as you said]

And I'm a sucker to atmospheric stuff... sooo.... the last two albums can be a good deal for me

Nortt kicks ass!Yeah,not too much Metal,but still....I always listen to this before I go to sleep.Sinister.....
The first post says we should discuss his ideology.Well,I can somewhat respect it.But not all of it.I mean,to actally want to die so badly....Why doesn't he just kill himself?Dumb fuck.I share some of his views of relligion and all of his views of today's society.So,that is it for now.
