Arrogant Bastard Black metal and synths, not a traditional amalgamation, but Kvalvaag have done a bang-up job.
Occasional synths augment the experience to an almost whimsical level, something I find oddly enticing. That's not to say Seid isn't a blistering rush of savagery, it's still absolutely brimming with blackened elements to make any black metal fan salivate.
Favorite track: Nattegrøde.

whatisthis8175 This was a masterpiece and a half. Amazing artwork, killer atmosphere, and precision instrumentation. The occasional cleans put a neat little bow on a phenomenal album.

H.L. TOP 2018 #8: Normally I keep new albums on my wishlist for a while before I decide to put them into my collection. In case of "Seid" I just waited until the third song! The album is so exuberant that this decision was a no-brainer. The synthesizer sounds are first class, the rough and clean vocals are great and the whole masterpiece spreads a spirit of inspiration and playfulness. For me "Seid" is a must hear for all fans of original and varied black metal! Favorite track: Nattegrøde.

about

"Seid" is the third studio album of norwegian black metallers KVALVAAG.
It`s more aggressive but at the same time more diverse and unpredictable than our previous albums

The unmistakable style of the Norwegian duo will take you in very cold atmospheres, impetuous rides and clearly epic parts. The atmosphere reminds the previous Malum album, but there is a lot more going on at all times. Haunting atmospheric touches and violent rhythmic elements produce something far bleaker and more unsettling than anything else.

Kvalvaag has this to say about the new album:

"When I started working on the new material, I wanted to surpass our previous work in every way possible. Much more time, effort and better equipment were used compared to our earlier works this time.
We also received financial support from "Norsk fond for utøvende kunstnere" who gave us the ability to give the album the production it deserved.
It was awesome working with Tom Kvalsonic as he is the man behind the sound of many of the albums we grew up with. He completely understood our vision and significantly raised the quality of the album. I feel we have successfully raised the bar as high as possible this time. We had to evolve a lot as musicians to be able to perform our parts during the recording. It has been a educational journey with a lot of hard work and technical challenges in the studio, but I am really satisfied with the end result and our musical progression".
