The side project of Solbrud guitarist/vocalist Ole Pedersen Luk, Afsky makes a big impression on its debut LP, Sorg. Afsky covers a lot of ground and treads the line between traditional black metal, atmospheric black metal, and depressive black metal, with some additional influences seeping in to provide some subtle nuances. It sometimes has that abrasive second-wave tonality and riffing that wouldn't sound out of place on a Taake record, while on the other hand it alternates between icy assaults and slower atmospheric/depressive sections that have a lot of depth to offer listeners. It's a strong first showing for this new Danish black metal project.
