Melodic and heavy rock from Kontinuum

Artist: Kontinuum | Single: Í Huldusal

Metalhammer has described them as “An astonishing cocktail of punk energy, post-rock weight and ambience, melancholic metal despondency and the occasional flash of Emperor’s ferocity”.

We don’t actually understand exactly what that means, but it sounds cool. All we know is that Kontinuum have a fresh single out now on their YouTube channel called Í Huldusal. And it’s a great example of classic quality rock in a retro style. Heavy, melodic and sung in Icelandic. Quit simply a power ballad that grows with every listening.

The single is from the band’s upcoming new album, whose title and release date are still unknown. Kontinuum’s previous album, Earth Blood Magic, was released in 2012 and was widely praised by critics.
