Oakhelm-demo 2006

ok,i said no new posts for a while but today i got some free time for this: I woke up this morning and the day was cold and the sky was full of dark clouds. After a while it stared snowing and it still does, it seems winter has come back so here is a appropriate soundtrack while sitting by the window and watching the snowflakes dancing on the wind.
Portland scene has offered many great crust/hardcore bands, also some great acts of atmospheric black metal poped up from time to time from the crust armies: Oakhelm is one of the bringers of sorrow and sadness, they are a pagan-folk black metal act including in their ranks former members of Fall of the Bastards and Pete Jay of Assuck and Wormwood.
This demo was recorded in 2006 and consists of two tracks about eight minutes long each. Music wise they deliver black metal with acoustic parts, folk elements and epic riffs with some melodies here and there,vocals are clear, still rough tough and lyrics are influenced by the "Celtic Book of the Dead".
if you are into melodic,epic black metal in the vein of Agalloch, Wolves in the Throne Room etc, then this is ok for your taste, apart from this, Oakhelm released "Betwixt and Between" full length in 2007 on Forest Moon Productions

Downloaded this one from myspace some years ago. Great stuff. With members of Fall Of The Bastards, I think.
