Another great gem i discovered this year and I'm glad i did it, Norska are a sludge/post metal band from Oregon. Although they might be strangers to you, Norska are already leaving their mark all around the blogosphere with some great reviews. I mean, this self titled album is flawless, it's great, it's awesome.. i love every track of it. Although i got over that post metal phase, there are still some good bands out there that continue to surprise me.. Norska are in fact one of those bands, really, you won't get a hint of boredom in this album, the songs are just plain awesome. An outstanding work. These guys have been sharing stage with some great names you already know like Batillus, Kowloon Walled City, The Atlas Moth, etc. I was saving this for the Best Of 2011 list but what the hell.. enjoy it. Highly Recommended.
