When bands insist on defining a whole new genre to describe the music they play it is often more adorably quirky than actually descriptive. However, when Bersærk claims to play heathen stoner rock it makes sense.
Bersærk’s debut album, “Mulm”, has a chill to it and seems like a backdrop to a place with howling winds and lurking wolves and heavily bearded men eating slabs of raw meat. It’s great, really, and decidedly Nordic.
And even if you don’t understand the Danish lyrics you will definitely understand the stories frontman Casper Roland Popp not so much sings but tells you. Dark, angry stories, that is.
