Great news. These two releases, as well as Adrift are fantastic.

I can't wait to hear the next step of Aurvandil.

"Yearning" is an incredible album, think of compact northern coldness à la early Aeternus with melodic parts like on Behemoth's "Sventevith".

Yeah, Yearning is great! This is not what I thought when I first listened to it, but I gave it another spin some days ago and thought, ''What was I thinking!?!''

I listened to an advance home-dubbed tape today and I must say the new album completely blew me away. Thrones is one of the best if not the best black metal album of 2013 (it's the summer... I can say that now right?). This recording is in a completely different realm than previous Aurvandil records as well as other contemporary acts.

I want to point out something about the intros and interludes. They are real instrumentals and not random plucking on grandpa's ukelele or useless bullshit keyboard or pitchshifted growling intros people have grown accustomed to. Aurvandil is one of the few no-gimmicks band that isn't in itself a gimmick. As for the riffs, arrangements, and character, expect nothing but 'Northern purity' soaring to (and in my opinion surpassing) the heights of bands such as Mgła and Vemod. Definitely the most anticipated purchase for me of this year.

First two albums didn't appeal to me quite much, but "Thrones" is certainly a big approvement compared to earlier musings - so, this one comes recommended as well.
