Fornjot was a giant closely associated with fire and thunder in the Nordic mythology. It was killed by Thor for some reason but now it has risen thanks to Swedish doomsters Mammoth Storm on their second full length offering. The band impressed me with their debut album “Rite Of Ascension” which was released early last year. Now it’s time to prepare for the next step.
There is nothing that is small or down sized on this album. Everything is done on an epic and gigantic scale. The riffs are made out of black rock and the tempo is crushingly slow. I love every minute of it and Mammoth Storm manages to keep it interesting throughout the whole album. With this album the band will forever be part of the great hall of doom in which we all will gather and worship Mammoth Storm as the Vikings worshiped their gods.
