GJÖLL ”Residual”


Battle Helm Rating

Japanese melodic death metal. I know, it is no big news these days. But I still find it really cool to be contacted by a band from Japan. A country I have been fascinated by since the 80s. GJÖLL are heavily influenced by the Scandinavian metal scenes. And you hear that very clearly in the sound. There is a Norwegian feel to the clean vocal parts and a Gothenburg feel to the more aggressive parts. Like a cross between Liv Kristine Espenaes, Amaranthe and Dark Tranquillity. This is just a four track EP, which is a shame as I would have liked to hear more. This really appealed to me. There is a charm and a positive energy to this that makes it for a very cool listen. I want much more of this. Anders Ekdahl
