Metallurgical Fire This album is very ambitious but it mostly works well. There are many beautiful moments here. Favorite track: Kraftsång till Sunna.

Obstacle of Affliction PRAISE THE SUN!
This album pays tribute our Sun but could also praise VY Canis Majoris, the largest star in the universe, due to its massive epic nature. Highly enjoyable pagan black metal. Favorite track: Livslågans flammande sken.

Dave Aftandilian Step into the woods, dappled with sunshine. Birds sing, wind whispers, tree and stone echo with the heartbeat of our green Mother. Raw heathen throats, human and animal, join the chorus from the shadows. Walk the old paths hidden beneath crackling leaves. Rage, burn, grow.

H.L. BHLEG perform nature-focused pagan black metal with some rough edges and a certain originality. This comes mainly from unusual ingredients like acoustic instruments, birds' singing or several kinds of male choirs, from viking style to yearning "aha oho aha"-moments. These moments are definitely the highlights of the album, which mainly stays in mid-tempo regions and also shows some repetition. I think, reduced to its emotional core in 45 instead of 90 minutes this has been a true masterpiece. Favorite track: Kraftsång till Sunna.

Ulven Pure gold like the sun it worships. From the debut Bhleg have been one of my favorite black metal bands. And Solarmegin what an emotional opus it is. Even the long length you want still spin it over and over again. You have to feel and hear it yourself and feel the warmth of the sun, the life bringer. Hail the old ways!

about

The Sun: life-giver to all beings, great and small. It always has, and will long after mankind is dead and gone. It is what warms the earth and pulls life from the soil. Even in this modern age, the world is indebted to the Sun, this ageless being, for vitalizing sustenance.

"Solarmegin", the principle and celebration of the Sun, culminates four years of ancient meditation and solar worship at the hands of the brothers of Swedish folk metal duo Bhleg. The 98 minutes of this rugged, earth-bound gratitude to the distant sphere of fire was only composed on the brightest of days, a sun-fulfilled being all its own.

Like any other plant, animal, human which owe its life to the sun, the folk metal of "Solarmegin" is jagged, blemished, imperfect. It is naltural, a being of soil and organic matter as ancient and weathered as the primeval music and cultures which inspired its composition.

Their lengthy, two disc solar celebration does not shine, much like soil does not shine. This is folk metal which predates the genre's plastic self. Bhleg is a reminder that the folk eement of folk metal is age-old, a primitive art which is meant to be cracked and earthen.
