What once was one of Sweden’s well received underground Black Metal acts, Hypothermia has taken the plunge into the world of instrumental Post-Rock/Metal. The change towards this more expansive and emotional approach is the end result of the natural musical progression from the group’s birth back in 2001. It wasn’t until 2003 that the band began to release material, starting with their first demo Saphien irretable. Four more demos and two splits later, and the first full-length effort, Veins, came to be, which was handled by Insikt Records. From here came more splits and two full-length albums, eventually moving on to the style that the now three-piece of vocalist/guitarist Kim Carlsson (Kall, Lifelover), drummer Richard Abrams (Sitra Ahra), and 2013’s recent acquisition of guitarist Hans Cools (Kite, Trancelike Void), has come to be known for. Now the group is signed to Agonia Records to release their new album, Svartkonst, the first new full-length in roughly five years. But does this stand as a fluid extension of the obvious Depressive Black Metal roots the group had pulled plenty of influence from, or does it fail to meet even the most basic of expectations?
