Long-running Colorado folkish black metal band The Flight of Sleipnir never get enough credit. Contemporaries of Panopticon, Falls of Rauros and even Caladan Brood, the outfit's been producing quality work since 2008, but seldom get mentioned among their esteemed contemporaries, which is a shame because the band has a knack for immediate and memorable guitar melodies. that melodic sensibility comes to the fore on their upcoming sixth full length, Skadi, thanks in part to contributions by new members Dave Borrusch on bass and Justin Siegler on second guitar. for a taste, enjoy their song "Earthen Shroud".

Founding multi-instrumentalist David Csicsely, who also created the record's striking cover art, has this so say about "Earthen Shroud", streaming below.

"The song is about the desire to explore as well as the inexplicable yearning we all have to find our way home. The frustration of being lost and unable to find our way back. Landscapes and markers we left behind always changing making it impossible to find. Respect where you came from because one day it might be gone."
