Potentiam - Orka I Myrkri

My favorite album from Iceland, and that's actually saying a whole helluva lot!  Orka I Myrkri is rabid yet melodic black thrash done excruciatingly tight'n'right.  Eldur, the main man behind Potentiam, is a musical dilettante.  His sound has drastically changed from album to album, but it's all done to perfection...from the cinematic icicleness of Balsyn to Orka's thrash attak to Years In der Shadows power metal's all good.  I believe they used the same producer that Sigur Ros uses, so put that in your pipe and smoke it.
