WEH “En natt kom doed”

“En natt kom doed”
(Soulseller Records)
OK, so Norway is very much tall mountains and deep valleys and some scattered cities in-between which might explain why so many Norwegian bands look to nature for inspiration but that doesn’t explain why something described as Neo Folk fights for space with bands like Manipulator and Ulverheim. They seem so totally out of place. Weh is acoustic and atmospheric and not bad at all but metal; no fucking way. And I don’t mean that in a derogatory way. This is some pretty good stuff if you like contemplative music and open fires, snuggling on bear skin rugs. Not the music you beat your chest to. This is music that I could listen to on a long walk in the forest, or on a hike in the Swedish fjäll. This is music that suits me when I want to journey inwards. I’m glad that I did get to hear this but I still don’t see how this fits in with metal. Anders Ekdahl
