While others are extremely busy trying to reinvent Black Metal, some guys just look back and exhume the good old grim and frostbitten spirit of Black Metal. That's exactly what Northward did with this Demo entitled "In Sturmes Wind". Although not influenced by them at all, this demo sounds like a faster and more aggressive version of (old) Drudkh their best material, also taking influences from bands like Lunar Aurora and the Blazebirth Hall groups. Mostly instrumental, but the thundering full sound, a-typical bassmelodies, overall guitarriffs and writing (alternating between midtempo mesmerizing parts, and fast and aggressive parts) makes this far above average demo quality. Really great stuff. Buy the tape here.
