This is probably one of the most underestimated bands ever. The music is just perfect! The guitar-work is amazing. The voice is perfect! What more can I say.... It was very difficult to pick my favorite track though since ALL tracks are my favorite. I really hope that this band will release new material soon. SUPPORT THIS BAND!
Favorite track: The Shattering.
Soijl is a special project established by Swedish multi-instrumentalist Mattias Svensson (Saturnus, Istapp, Vanmakt, Nidrike) many years ago, however, only in late 2014 the band started recording the official 3-song demo. The songs received positive response among fans of doom music and the band continued to work with enthusiasm over the other tracks. The album is called «Endless Elysian Fields» and contains seven songs lasting for a total of about an hour and stylistically tending to atmospheric doom death metal. According to the band members, these are "7 tracks full of total despair and fear", as the lyrics of the album tell mostly about people with suicidal tendencies and what is going on in their heads.
The disc comes with a luxurious 20-page booklet. The package design is crafted by well-known designer and photographer Roman Corvinus (Wine From Tears, Mare Infinitum, Aut Mori).

Another atmospheric gem. Best listened to from beginning to end, to get the full impact. Some lyrical refrain connects this one (and apparently the forthcoming one) to the debut, and there are songs from each album that sort of inversely mirror each other. It seems WNR are building their own darkly romantic musical mythos, and the journey is well worth going on. Some guy
