Thromdarr - Midwinter Frost - Complete Demo Tapes 1990-1997

Finland’s Thromdarr was there at the beginning of the Black Metal phenomenon that swept Europe in the early 1990s. A band that released only 2 full-length albums in their career (so far) this exhaustive release follows their musical path up to the release of their debut album NorthStorm Arrives.

The two-disc set follows their early thrash death metal style leanings with lots of Celtic Frost, Death Sodom, and their early death grind style roots before finding their own style as a raw Black metal act. Midwinter Frost is in reverse order, so their earliest stuff is last, and it is gloriously rough. Real single mic demo type rough, left in their original condition without any technological advances. ‘’Consume the Lifeless Cadaver’ and ‘’ The Taste of Formaldehyde’’ are pure death-grind-inspired works but things quickly evolve into a more brutal direction. It is raw power and yet not without some vast soundscapes, clean vocals, and playing ‘’ Forest of the Black Diamonds’’, ‘’Winter of Flames’’ and ‘’Rainbow in a Red Desert’’ are excellent examples of their evolving style that grew from simple gore and satanism to the ever-evolving themes of darkness and nature.

Midwinter Frost is not perfect, and it’s not supposed to be.

It does represent the band beautifully and is more enjoyed in the original way things were done. Lots of inspirational jamming that turned into recordings, some of the excellent along with a cold beer or two and it encapsulates the rapid change of the extreme music scene that took place in the early nineties and the power of raw Black Metal.
