Windir-Arntor (1998)

Windir is a rather legendary band in black metal/folk metal circles, and with good reason. Valfar, the brains behind Windir, was an amazingly talented songwriter, guitarist, and accordionist. Arntor is known by most fans of the band as a sort of pinnacle in black metal, and especially a creative pinnacle for the band, with epic, folk-oriented songs, with heavy atmosphere. I really cannot put into words how wonderful this album is....one of my top 10 favorite metal albums of all time. Highly, highly recommended...no, required! Head Not Found Records.

Windir is definitely one of the best in the Norwegian scene. But I cant decide if Arntor, Likferd, or 1184 should be on throne. Get all of them, this is the order!!!
