Norilsk is a doom-death metal band from Gatineau, Quebec, Canada. They released their debut album, The Idea of North, in 2016. The album is inspired by the Canadian experience of the North, and it explores themes of darkness, isolation, identity, archaism, and persistence. The music is slow and crushing, with death growls and atmospheric arrangements. It has been compared to bands like My Dying Bride, Morgion, and Ablaze in Hatred.
The album was recorded at Studio En-Phase in Montreal by Jean-Philippe Latour, and mixed at Pebble Studios in Ottawa by Mike Bond. The artwork was designed by Sam Ford.
The Idea of North was well-received by critics. Metal Hammer gave it a 4 out of 5 stars review, and said that it was "a crushingly heavy and atmospheric album that will appeal to fans of funeral doom and sludge metal."
If you're a fan of doom-death metal, then you should definitely check out The Idea of North by Norilsk. It's a dark and atmospheric album that will transport you to the frozen wastes of the North.
