REISM “Dysthymia”


Battle Helm Rating

I love Norwegian metal. I even liked TNT’s debut album, the one where they sung in Norwegian and had an AC/DC-ish sound. Much cooler Norwegian bands have since then passed by and the expectations have been raised. When I get to hear a new Norwegian band in 2020 the hopes are much higher than they were in 1983. The first thing that hit me listening to REISM is that they reminded me of Atrox. Perhaps not as quirky as Atrox but in that same kinda vein. This is not as melodic as I was led to believe. But it isn’t too shabby. There are melodies but there is also a heaviness. all in all this one turned out to be so much more interesting than I thought at first. Anders Ekdahl
