alda Passage (180g red vinyl double LP, £24.50)
The fittingly titled “Passage” finds Alda further strengthening their bonds as musicians and honing their style into an even more earthen and evolved fusion of black styled metal often revered in their location, and a passionately spirited folk presence. Alda have noticeably grown as songwriters while not forsaking the roots of their core sound. It marks a vital addition not only to their own impressive catalog, but to the ever growing North American “black metal” community. Passage is an all-encompassing journey into the mountains and environs surrounding them, another monumental release combining nature oriented aspects, underground metal DIY ethic's and spirituality. "In short, if Agalloch, WITTR or even old Ulver ever moved you, you need this." 8 /10 TERRORIZER. + download.
