'Preludium' is an instrumental and dark piece of post-metal with all the typical elements to make this a great track. Drones, drums and piercing guitars create a highly atmospheric track which proves a lot of good for this band. Title track 'I Min Avgrunn' then comes up with intense post-black metal, which is quite irresistible for extreme music fans.
This really is a nice teaser for what sounds like a great album in the near future. Fans of Deafheaven, Landlôs and Falloch can't go wrong with this one. In fact, this Himmelraate might become a fierce competitor in the post-black metal scene.
