Hellthrasher Productions proudly presents the debut EP of Germany's Isgalder on A5 digipak CD (lim 200). Isgalder (translated from Old-High-German as „icy chant“ or „cold incantation“) was founded in mid-2017 by Grimwald (Dauþuz, Wintarnaht) – vocals/guitars, and Moppel – drums/bass/keys. Hailing from the Thuringian Forest, the band emerges with a splendid piece of epic pagan black metal influenced by early Falkenbach and Bathory. Their debut EP tells a little story about the journey of a man, wandering old forgotten paths in search of nature and solitude. The journey to the hall of the stars...
"Impassioned pagan metal by new heroes in folkish black metal." (Invisible Oranges)
"Throughout To the Hall of the Stars, Isgalder does a great job of balancing their more near serene and mystical atmospheric qualities with their more ripping and face melting black metal tendencies utilizing each to their fullest potential." (Cadaver Garden)
"This is a super-exciting release from Isgalder, one that delivers on its promise of pagan-infused black metal." (GBHBL)
Full-length coming later this year via Naturmacht Productions!

This one was a slow burn for me. Repeat listens are essential I think to really appreciate it. That said, if someone asked me to introduce or describe black metal to them, I’d give them this album. They’ll either run screaming or be a fan of the genre for life. Brian3737
