Brundarkh - Haunted Worlds (EP) - Reviewed by FULL METAL MAYHEM ! Check it out here at this link: https://fullmetalmayhem.wordpress.com/2021/12/07/brundarkh-mit-haunted-worlds/
How did I get to know the band: This EP was also sent to me by The Metal Devastation Radio and I'm pretty excited.
How do I find the record: It sounds really interesting. Almost as if someone had shot Cradle of Filth into a death metal band with a mass accelerator. Yes, it kicks ass properly, but also sounds orchestral in a good way. So here they know what they are doing and how to manage the balancing act between melodic, orchestral sounds and brutal death metal. They have particularly well managed the contrast between clear and guttural singing.
All three real songs, THROUGH THE MIST THEY COME Is a classic intro song and THE PRICE OF IMMORTALITY is an interlude, are really good, but I think BELLS OF THE DROWNED is best. Everything just fits together.
Conclusion: Just great. They really get it to make the mixture sound horny. Anyone who has come to harder metal via Cradle of Filth and Amon Amarth should have fun and maybe become a little nostalgic. Definitely listen here: FULL METAL MAYHEM

Brundarkh is a dark fantasy inspired metal act founded by composer, Heino Brand. Haunted Worlds (EP) was produced and recorded with the help of Caleb Bingham (Athanasia, ex-Zonaria, ex-Five Finger Death Punch).
The EP features the remixed and remastered versions of Wraith Dominion. The original track was recorded and released as a single in February 2021. It centers around the Nine a.k.a. the Ringwraiths or the Nazgûl from J.R.R. Tolkien's, "The Lord of the Rings". The track also features a guest solo by Jori Haukio (Cymatic, ex-Mors Principium Est). Bells of the Drowned focuses on the lore of "The Drowned" from the video game, "Diablo IV". It
was originally released without the intro From the Mist they Come. Tower of Blood and the intro The Price of Immortality are brand new tracks and are inspired by the folklore of Hungary’s, Elizabeth Bathory. The track features Elisheva Abramson as the voice of “Countess Bathory”. The EP was mastered by Thomas “Plec” Johanson at The Panic Room. Art direction/creation by Heino Brand.
