Tivaz - Under Nordic Stars
RZD 080  |  2014  |  Digipack CD

After a series of digital only releases, Russia's Tivaz present their first foray into the physical realm.  Under Nordic Stars represents the second full length work and shows a tremendous range from pagan filled hymns of battle to cold tracks of atmospheric black metal to frost covered passages of isolating ambient.  The styles all pressed together in one cohesive journey playing as the soundtrack to storm the castle or crest a lonely snow-topped peak.
