Frost

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Vincent Jeffries
An important release for the extreme music subgenre of Viking metal, Frost represented a sizeable creative leap for Norway's Enslaved. After only a few years of existence, several record labels, and a few member changes, Enslaved had settled into a bit of a groove on this 1994 release.

After only a few years of existence, several record labels, and a few member changes, Enslaved had settled into a bit of a groove on this 1994 release.

The music oscillates between spooky, plodding keyboard intros to black metal so fast and furious, barely a beat or melody is descernable. Highlights include the relatively decipherable "Fenris" and the slow, dissonant "Yggdrasil," but in general, all the tracks on Frost bear enough of a resemblance to make this 1994 release a fine black metal listen. Fans of the Viking metal subgenre certainly need to add this to their collection, but metal fans, even lovers of the sonically similar (but much more American) death metal genre, might not respond to Frost.
