Black Metal Friday: Frosthelm “Silent and Dark, The Everlasting Sky”

Cold, forlorn landscapes make the ideal breeding grounds for black metal bands. Maybe that’s why North Dakota is rapidly becoming the U.S. black metal (USBM) scene’s answer to Scandinavia. Earlier this year we were gifted with the release of ND natives Ghost Bath’s awe-inspiring masterpiece Moonlover. Now comes another stunning slab of USBM from their fellow Dakota residents Frosthelm.

After a couple of highly acclaimed independent releases Frosthelm has taken their blackened thrash attack to legendary metal producer Matt Hyde’s new label Black Work (Alkemy Brothers) and delivered the brilliant and pummeling album The Endless Winter. Skeletonwitch singer Chance Garnett may have summed these guys up best with this quote: “A definite Euro/cold guitar tone but with an American ‘something’ added. I hear Immortal meets The Black Dahlia Murder, and that’s something I’ve not yet heard.”

This week’s Black Metal Friday pick is “Silent and Dark, The Everlasting Sky” from the latest album, so if you like your thrash blackened or your black metal a bit thrashy, then you definitely need to check out Frosthelm. And be sure to pick up a copy of The Endless Winter if you dig it. Help support the USBM scene and crank that shit up so your neighbors can enjoy it too!
