With their two-track EP "Domur um daudan hvern" ("Judgement of Everyone Dead"), Fortid send out an impressive sign of life. The Icelandic pagan black metal outfit continues in the massive footprints that their current album "World Serpent" has left. Epic Icelandic melodies, sharp riffing that draws from black, death, thrash, and heavy metal as well as Einar Eldur Thorberg's distinct vocals combine into fiery and spirited new songs. Instead of twiddling thumbs while stuck at home, Fortid decided to hone their weapons by writing new material and to weather out the global storm season in their rehearsal room and later in the studio to make the best out of the situation. The first new songs on "Domur um daudan hvern" demonstrate that "World Serpent" was not an accidental success, but that this album represents a new height, which the Icelanders, with many years of experience under their belts and still burning with passion, have securely reached and hold on to. With Einar firmly at the helm, the Icelanders are still following the course that he set on the "Voluspa"-trilogy of albums from 2003 to 2010. Their combination of harsh black and death metal riffing with a pinch of thrash and a penchant for epic melodies, versatile vocals as well as a heavy dose of "Icelandic sound" was maintained on the acclaimed "Pagan Prophecies" (2012) full-length and the following "9" (2015) album as well, which finally led to the dark and deadly "World Serpent" being unleashed onto the pagan metal world. Far from being satisfied with their latest achievements, Fortid are preparing for their next attack. "Domur um daudan hvern" is a strong omen for those ravens of the north to embark on another metal journey filled with heavy glory, riffs of ice, and steel-strings!
