  Hild  are  a  band  from  Sweden t hat  has  previously  had  music  reviewed  in  this  zine  and  plays  a  mixture  of  black,  death  and  thrash  metal  and  this  is  a review  of  their  2012  album  "Va;Freiya"  which  will  be  released  in  October  by  Odium  Records.

  A  very  heavy  yet  melodic  sound  starts  off  the  album  while  the  faster  sections  of  the  songs  also  add  in  a  great  amount  of  blast  beats  and  thrash  metal  elements.  Vocals  are  done  in  mostly  a  shouting  black  metal  style  that  is  very  close  to  the  first  wave  era  along  with  some  death  metal  growls  also  being  utilized  at  times.

  Throughout  the  recording  you  can  also  hear  a  decent  mixture  of  slow,  mid  paced  and  fast  parts  while  the  solos  and  leads  are  also  done  in  a  very  dark  yet  melodic  style  when  they  are  utilized.  Most  of  the  tracks  stick  to  the  2  minute  limit  along  with  songs  mixing  an  old  school  style  in  with  a  more  modern  day  aggression  and  the  whole  recording  also  sticks  to  a  heavier  direction  as  well  as  some  of  the  riffing  also  mixing  in  influences  of  crust.

  On  this  recording  Hild  remains  true  to  the  mixture  of  black,  death  and  thrash  metal  that  they  had  introduced  on  the  singles.  The  production  sounds  very  professional  while  the  lyrics  cover  Nordic  Mythology  and  Paganism  themes.

  In  my  opinion  this  is  another  great  sounding  album  from  Hild  and  if  you  are  a  fan  of  black,  death  and  thrash  metal,  you  should  check  out  this  recording.  RECOMMENDED  TRACKS  INCLUDE  "ValFreiya"  "Hrist"  "Rota"  and  "Hild".  8  out  of  10. - BlackenedDeathMetalZine

Lars Broddesson about HILD and the album ValFreiya:
“HILD, meaning battle/strife, is a war and battle themed project centered around the Valkyries of Nordic mythology. Each song named after, and honoring, a specific Valkyrie, channeling their respective traits. HILD came to life in a flash one late summer evening while walking entranced through the landscape. I was instructed by my higher powers to head back to my studio and complete a 2-minutes song in one session. The aim was to do so as Thrash Metal under the banner of HILD, a band name I´d had in the back of my head for some time. The divine spark of inspiration hit immediately, and I had most of the song and entire concept ready in my head before I was back at the studio to record. The song, ValFreiya, Took 5 hours roughly. I got a taste for it and decided to keep it going and not let any song be longer than 2:30 or take more than 6-7 hours to complete. A few weeks later I had 12 songs, an album, finished barely knowing what happened.”
