Nortt - Ligfærd (2006)

Ghostly blackened funeral doom from this one-man Danish project. Sparse, cavernous drums, drawn out power chords, dissonant clean guitar and piano, and rasping growls. Offhand, I can't think of a more effective, or seamless, combination of black metal and funeral doom. Though Nortt was definitely internet-metal-nerd-famous back in the day, he hasn't put out any new material in almost a decade, so I'm guessing a lot of you have missed the boat on his immaculate depression.

Track listing:
1. Gudsforladt
2. Ligprædike
3. Vanhellig
4. Tilforn Tid
5. Dødsrune
6. Ligfærd
