Grimnir Apologies to everyone else working in the Mortiis era 1 tradition, this is the very best I have heard since COTW. Actually surpasses most Mortiis in polish, intricacy, and compositional skill, but also manages to carve out its own identity while remaining pure Dungeon Synth. If you're curious about the genre, buy this, Grimrik's Eisreich, and the Arath S/T 1st then work your way back to their influences. See my reviews for other DS recs, I only review stuff I love.

about

This album is about the big war in Murgrind's fantasy world and continues the story of "Journey Through The Mountain". The peoples that follow the old gods unite and march against the sign of the new world in this epic, mystical, dramatic but yet beautiful adventure that you become part of while listening!

From a review on Heathen Harvest Periodical

"Lurking amidst the dark forests of Deutschland, there dwells a mysterious character in Murgrind. He is the protagonist in an opera of his own making. Wielding a mighty blowing horn, this noble savage transmits the soundtrack of a mystical realm to the rest of us in our places of comfort and modernity. Why does he call out? Probably to call upon the inner barbarian that rages within each of us, reminding us of the world we left behind, or perhaps ushering us into a fantastical world yet to be."

From a review on the Dungeon Synth Blog:

"Inheritor of the Forest Throne is a serious, epic return to the dark ages as they might've once been, with a sense of vastness and grandeur, and yet still an earthly realism. If most dungeon synth is like video game music, Murgrind's album would be better compared to film soundtracks. It has a level of professionalism that is rarely heard in dungeon synth. It certainly still has that classic dungeon synth sound however, with the 90's digital keyboard style, sticking primarily to the more realistic tones such as brass, flutes, strings, choirs, timpani, etc. The melodies fall strictly into the traditional dungeon synth mood, staying somewhat static in its grandiose, "epic" tone, conveying a sense of endless combat. It is reminiscent Lord Wind and its major influence, the soundtrack of Conan the Barbarian."

From a review in metal sound magazine:

"I guess that many people who adore and follow bands like Summoning, Numenor or Bal-Sagoth, which have more metal base, could find this sort of music very interesting. Truly speaking Murgrind is the best example in this moment how dark ambient music could or should sound."
