Vordven-Towards the Frozen Stream (1999)

Amazing album from short-lived Finnish epic symphonic black metal band, Vordven. I cannot sing the praises of this band enough....epic, atmospheric soundscapes, beautiful melodies, subtle, yet grand, keys, tasteful, sparingly-used female vocals...just overall, an AMAZING band. I'd recommend this to all fans of symphonic/epic black metal (not the cheesy Dimmu-clone crap), especially for fans of bands as varied as early Abigor, and Summoning, to name a few. Highly recommended!! No Colours Records.
