Wodensthrone's powerful, progressive-tinged atmospheric black metal masterpiece Curse is perhaps my favourite black metal release of 2012 (next to the decidedly un-atmospheric and aggressive Black Breath's release). With powerful compositions and exceptional performances, and a lyrical slant which combines nostalgia for olden-times paganism with a Wolves In the Throne Room-esque reverence of mother Earth and hatred of what we humans have done to her, the band certainly have most of the bases covered as far as atmospheric black metal goes, and they deliver the goods with aplomb. Árfæst on keyboards adds a very subtle touch and in general avoids showboating, which helps support the grim and foreboding tone of the album.
