Frosthelm - The Endless Winter

Frosthelm is a four piece band consisting of members Jim Cherry-Bass, Dakota Irwin-Guitars, Tyler Pfliger-Vocals, Shannon Frye-Drums. Genre described as black/death metal. Band origin Bismarck, ND.

The Endless Winter album released on 22 March 2015 Black Work (Alkemy Brothers). It has been several weeks since I lend my ears to this release. An excellent blend of black/death melodies and complex arrangements. Direct and relentless in its delivery. It is one of those albums that I can listen to from start to finish and never get tire of it. Great production quality, solid, heavy distortion and punishing drums. The track "Hell Between Us", is worth cranking up. Fast grinds and torturous screams. "Tomb of Sordid Ruin", is another favorite of mine, catchy melodies and savage chorus lines. "Forlorn Tides" is another stand out song.
In conclusion, the album delivers brutality on all levels. The underground community will take notice as this release makes waves reaching new ears.
