[ Ex Mortem Records ]

Featuringed a twisted amalgamate of inauspicious Black Metal and onerous Doom Metal, Swedish quartet Vandod, comprising of Niclas Ankarbranth, Henrik Wendel, Martin Linde & Daniel Wikforss prove once again that the Scandinavian Metal Scene is one of the enigmatic, sombre and forboding on the face of this planet. Although mostly Black Metal, Vandod throw in a touch or sprinkle here and there of repressive & epic Doom just to add that little bit of flavour! Not only does "As" have flavour and variance with it's style and sound though, but the technical awareness of these four gentleman is staggering, The end product? Simply breathe taking. Dark Metal from the frozen North, designed and exectuted for dark times ahead!
