October Falls do blackened metal that has both a death metal and a folk feel in places. It makes sense when heard. This is very polished; there is no rawness in the presentation. I like the use of short acoustic segments to create transitions. This will appeal to most fans of mid-tempo atmospheric black metal.
Favorite track: The Verge Of Oblivion.
OCTOBER FALLS returns with "The Plague Of A Coming Age", a deeply melancholic, emotive journey through eras gone and yet to come, an ominous album from the soil and of the soil, seeped in the blood of fallen ancestors, paying homage to their struggles, celebrating their honour and acknowledging their sacrifice – the ultimate redemption. At once nostalgic and harrowing, "The Plague Of A Coming Age" narrates ancient, historic events in OCTOBER FALLS' inimitable, organic style... exquisitely sonorous, subtly aggressive and always divinely melodic. Nourishment for the subconscious, medicine for the soul, a remedy for the ills of aeons unknown, yet felt. Time scars the flesh; these marks are passed from generation to generation, carrying the wisdom that lives in us all.

Researched Icelandic bands before being able to visit the country in 2019 and found primarily Misþyrming!!!! They reignited and intensified an existing ( and somewhat on the back burner at the time ) love of heavy music. Even listened on the flight there! I have gotten into a lot of great bands because of them. hellaganj2000

Such a solid and unique offering thats been on repeat since purchased. Dark and pummeling with moments of light. Not a bad track on this album. You can be heavy AND catchy which this proves in spades. I love this band!! Thanks for the tip off by old Jackson from Into the Necrosphere podcast!! The Eye Is You

If it was not for Blayne Smiths review of their latest album on Overkill reviews I might have missed this band. In short the music is like epic Black metal, brutal at times with great melody and total atmosphere to immerse you in. Amazing stuff. Stefan B
