For those of you who aren't sentient of Wyrd's background, let me shed some light on the area under question. The project was initially formed below the Hellkult name seven years ago by core element Nargath, and Kalma (who in the past played in Azaghal, an ardent Black Metal group). Three demos were recorded and a short while following Kalma's leaving, Nargath made a decision to go on by himself, but in a slight dissimilar approach and with a new moniker (or in other terms, the central Thrash Metal technique explored earlier was now giving room to an atmospheric shape of Black Metal with heathen, folkloric touches, beneath the banner of Wyrd).
Following this short elucidation on Nargath's past doings, let us focus on Vargtimmen Pt. 1, the third Wyrd release on Solistitium (dwelling of the great Norwegian Isvind). As I previously stated above, the sound is largely full of atmosphere, with mid-paced drumming, melodious (but plain) riffs in the northern vein, ambient keyboard lines on the background (relatively buried) and covering it, those archetypal demonic (yet meek) vocal shrieks. The whole thing works pretty fine, seeing as the mood brought up by the melody walks alongside the lyrics (that are clearly individual chants to Nature and its unknown secrets, introducing Nargath's appeal to its absorbing soul (and those acoustic pieces that surge every so often do increase this feeling all the more).
