With each track perfectly sculpted at the highest density of the band’s idiosyncratic artistic hyperboles, the melodies are amazingly consistent and sensible, and generate in the epicenter of its rude, but at the same time restless calmness a diluted volatility, that revolves around the shadows of its own profoundly humane and passionate intensity.
Like a glorious odyssey that portrays with sincere veracity the serenity of its own intermittent thoughts, the music of Nattfog is characterized by the opalescent and extreme beauty of its gracious and imperiously vivid melodies, whose dynamic layer of pristine sonority gradually dissipates itself beyond all the tempestuous tenderness that levitates underneath the vicinities of its reluctant, but simultaneously expansive cosmogony. With linear harmonies that reveals a progressive, but cohesive musical diagram, the elegant and virtuous style of the band can easily captivate the most passionate enthusiasts of the genre, and its ardently poetic – though sometimes discreetly melancholic – atmosphere is so penetratingly fascinating, that as soon as the album is over, you become desperate to listen to it again.
A formidably gracious and captivating album that certainly deserves all recognition, Pohjan Porteilta is a singular masterpiece, that certainly has potential to make history in the underground black metal scene. With a gracefully amazing and unique splendor – consecrated by an abundance of primordially majestic melodies – this fantastic, proverbial and astoundingly excellent record is enough to qualify Nattfog as one of the greatest black metal bands in history.
