Vordven - Towards the Frozen Stream (1997)

Finnish black metal. There's a strong presence of non-harsh elements -- layered keyboards, clean vocals, and acoustic guitars -- resulting, in combination with melodic, mid-tempo riffs and a whole lotta reverb, in a strangely beautiful, ethereal feel.

Track listing:
1. Harness of Heaven
2. Moonlight in the Northern Sky
3. Dream of Northside
4. Rivendell
5. Aurora Borealis
6. Eternal Storm
7. When the Snowcrystal Reaches the Nightgleam
8. Towards the Frozen Stream

Journey into the realms above
