Oh how happy I was that Stilla’s third studio album got released today, this being my first release day review for an album. Being a quite new band, formed in 2011, from my home county Skåne I’ve followed these guys for awhile now. Skuggflock is another chapter in Stilla’s book that keeps their songwriting theme of nature and death which has a very atmospheric feeling throughout the whole album.
Stilla sings solely in Swedish but even if you don’t understand the language the atmosphere will reel you in wanting more. A very pleasant listening that takes you on a cold autumn journey in the Swedish wilderness of death and despair.
For fans of: Dråpsnatt and Grift
Best song: Av Maran riden
