Tharaphita
Primeval Force

Wow ! THARAPHITA is the second viking metal revelation I had this autumn with OBTEST. OBTEST from Lithuania, and THARAPHITA from Estonia... damned ! What's going on in East Europe ??? The quantity of great band that come from these countries is growing each day. If ten years ago we didn't even know that metal was active there, now we hear some excellent material almost each month : THARAPHITA, OBTEST, MUST MISSA, LOITS, MANATARK, METSATÖLL, HUMAN GROUND, DISSIMULATION and so on... hell, that's great ! THARAPHITA delivers some really inspired music made of heavy metal rhythms and guitar leads, almost black atmospheres and sharpened riffs here and there, clear and blacky or thrashy voices, the whole surrounded by very epic tunes which give an anthem-sounding to these eight tracks. Very melodic and really powerful at the same time, THARAPHITA's viking heavy/black can appeal to both fans of viking black and folk heavy metal. Together with OBTEST, this band appears to be the perfect missing link in folk/epic/pagan/viking (call it as you want) metal, and certainly the future references of the style. 8 epic anthems and a beautiful unforgettable album, that's what "Primeval force" is.
