Some of this album took me by surprise. Helheim was never a band that I could see myself listening to, but, probably about half of the album had me thinking “Hey, maybe I should have listened to them more.” However the other half was exactly what you might expect from Helheim. The album starts off strong with the title track, “Rignir”. The album continues with both good & not so good songs. “Kaldr” didn’t really float my boat, but, musically, it was really good. Considering that I was expecting this to be a 1 out of 5 Music Guru stars, it surprised me enough to give it 3.5 out of 5 Music Guru stars. For those of you who really like Helheim, I don’t think that you’ll be disappointed.
