(Metal Scrap Records)
I had for a long time problems getting to grips with the band name Voice Of Midnight. It sounded so anonymous and bland but I’ve grown accustomed to it by now. “Bifrost” is all sung in Russian which makes it hard to decipher what it is that they are singing about. So to me the voice(s) are just another instrument. Musically this ends up somewhere along all the German pagan metal bands like Helfahrt, Eluveite (albeit Swiss) and what not they are called. This is black metal with a strong touch of folklore/music that has become so popular in the last ten years. This is also very nice. Not too folkish that it destroys the metal experience but with enough touches of it to make it interesting enough to stand out a bit from all the ordinary black metal. My main problem with “Bifrost” is that it ends way too soon. This is an album I wouldn’t have minded if it had lasted an hour or so. Cool. Anders Ekdahl
