Astral Forest Winds
November 2004
Released: 2004, Oak Knoll
Rating: 3.0/5
Reviewer: MetalGeorge

Another strong showing from Oak Knoll Records, this time from Swedish act Evermork. Well right off the band I gotta say...they sure do sound Swedish all right! This is, of course, not a bad thing. While this isn't quite as original as the Born of Thorns disc, it is almost equally enjoyable. In addition, this is also another triple song attack, in and out in less than 10 minutes. This serves as a fair taste of what's to come, hopefully.

So what does Evermork sound like? Hmm..."melodic black/death" seems to do the trick, I think. The band thrashes about with speedy, catchy riffs in the vein of classic In Flames (LUNAR STRAIN) as well as blacker acts like DAWN or NAGLFAR. Bands like this just seem to have an uncanny knack for writing memorable-ass riffs that..well, just make the listener happy! That's right, I said, "happy".

Yes, Evermork rock out in a very "friendly" way, but I'm not holding it against them. This is music to jam in your car to on the way to work, or when your crackin' some beers with your mates. Although some guitar solos would help out the band greatly, I think that we're going to see some strong things from this band on their upcoming full length.

Solid stuff that is worth checking out if you miss (like I do) the early days of the Swedish scene.
