It’s been a few months, but I still stand by my claims that Vildhjarta are among the cream of the crop in the ‘Big Four’ of djent. There’s just something hypnotic about the music in their very percussive and dissonant riffs. These sounds are like cries of pain, and Bergström & Co. should be tried for guitar abuse.
Vildhjarta have released the latest bit of evidence against them and their tortured riffs in a guitar playthrough of ‘Benblåst‘, above. I think I finally get it; maybe thall is the safe word? You know, for when the guitar has had too much? It’s not like they’d listen anyway; the oft-repeated phrase rings of mockery as the guitar sobs in the corner, violated.
Oh good, I’ve made myself sad.
