Trveheimer super nice black metal with some neocrust influences and a lot of great melodies. Favorite track: Hernswolf.

Ippocalyptica My favourite metal EP of 2015, Burn and Bury is a very effective hybrid of black metal, sludge and post-metal, and while that combination may sound weird, it works to create very memorable compositions that cover a lot of atmospheric and melodic terrain in just over 16 minutes. Slower melodic passages, ripping tremolo riffing and thunderous blast beats all come together in such masterful arrangements, this album feels like it has more content than albums more than twice as long. Beautiful. Favorite track: Sunless.

Hank If you look at my collection, BM isn't really in my genre wheelhouse. However, what attracted me to JØTNARR is that they perfectly fuse a number of different genres together flawlessly, without the music feeling bloated and aimless. There's something for everyone here: BM tremolos and vocal shrieks, brief moments of post-rock beauty, sludge rampages...all beneath an umbrella of stripped-down punk simplicity. Recommended for fans of anything really. Except the tech death crowd, sorry guys. Favorite track: Rise By Sin.

Joe Sanderson Saw them at The Black Heart in Camden, and decided they'd definitely be worth keeping an eye on. Best played very, very loud.

REVIEWS:

Jøtnarr’s arsenal is proving increasingly powerful, their Black undercurrent positively effervescent with the superb blend and execution of other hostilities. Burn and Bury marks them out as one of the UK’s brightest underground lights at present.
- Ghost Cult (www.ghostcultmag.com/ep-review-jotnarr-burn-and-bury/)

The band’s influences may span diverse genres but their masterful songwriting weaves everything into a fantastic tapestry of sounds and emotions.
- The Metal Observer (www.metal-observer.com/3.o/review/jotnarr-burn-and-bury/)

"JØTNARR show plenty of promise on this release and could grow into one of the leading names in British underground extreme music should they keep up the amazing work. Expect great things from this band in the coming years."
- The Sludgelord (thesludgelord.blogspot.co.uk/2015/08/vinyl-corner-jtnarr-burn-and-bury-ep.html)

" In only seventeen minutes they have proven that they’re doing everything right and deserve your attention."
- Metal Recusants (metalrecusants.com/2015/05/01/jotnarr-burn-and-bury/)

"If the hope and vitality of the British doom scene holds true, then it lies in the future of bands like Jotnarr...basing their sound around the honesty of a hardcore sound grounding it so the more phantasmagorical themes of the host genres don't override the vital and primal need to surge onwards and upwards...It's clear within a minute that they've upped their game from the already impressive double set of demos and deliver against the expectation, and by the time it ends, a sadly short less than seventeen minutes later, you are compelled to simply play it from the start again...Alongside Dune, Meadows, Torpor, Bast and many more, the meddling of genres is a high point calling card of the best of the British doom uprising. And Jotnarr rise straight to the top; this cacophony, this almost perfect concoction of potions delivering a spell that is troublesome, nose bleedingly heavy, and ultimately enchanting."

Track Name: Rise By Sin
Thorns wrapped like fences
made of rust and knives
Ride out pious zealot
vapid bile and fire
Pride and hatred hidden,
like poison in clean flesh
The tide is breaking closer
and your flag is set to burn.
Track Name: Sunless
In the ruins of a gutted planet
we are failed apes
feeling prison walls
with filthy hands.
