(7/10) Norwegian rock and metal outfit Dunderbeist worked on a new EP that hits the shelfs in March. This disc is the highly anticipated successor of the 2015 release “Hyklere", an album that received very positive feedback from fans and media.
"Tvilja", the new EP of the six Norwegians, comes with five tracks. Based on classic rock, Dunderbeist embarks on a dark trip that sounds pretty good. "Kometen Kom" is the first track and it the title indicates the fact that the lyrics are kept in Norwegian. Since my Norwegian isn't existing I can't tell you a lot about what the tunes are about. What I can say though is that the opener is a melodic rocker, mostly kept in mid-pace and spiced-up with a good melodic approach.
Things get darker with "Terpentin" before "Vakum"'covers the scenery with melancholy. You might have a need for a more uptempo track and you'll get it. The title track feels almost light-hearted compared to what you got served beforehand. "Isvind (grå gås)" is already the last song on this EP and brings back the mournful vibe, even though the chorus got a slightly different expression.
Dunderbeist's new EP is a well-crafted piece of creation. It will not turn the world upside down but it comes with almost 30 minutes of good music that's worth to be checked out.
